Artist Support Grants are unrestricted $5,000 awards, granted by an external selection panel of community leaders and culture workers, designed to support practitioners interested in expanding the boundaries of their practice at any stage in their career.
Our special designation Artist Support Grants are for artists, culture workers, and creative practitioners working in any discipline who self-identify as a member of a community or communities that have historically faced discrimination or been denied access to institutional support based on race, age, national origin, religious background, differing abilities, sex, sexual orientation, economic status, or gender identity.
Our intention is not to ghettoize, essentialize, or further marginalize any one population, but rather, provide increased direct financial support to adjust historic imbalances.
Amplify’s Black American Artist Support Grant is an unrestricted $5,000 award, granted by an external jury of culture workers and community members, to an individual, collective, or collaborative duo making outstanding work in any discipline. Any applicant who self-identifies as Black, African American, Afro-Indigenous, Afro-Latino/a/x, or mixed heritage with African ancestry is encouraged to apply.
Practitioners committed to expanding the parameters of contemporary art practice in new and innovative ways, reconstructing and reclaiming cultural identities, and asserting the subjectivities of Blackness in their work are especially encouraged to apply.
Amplify’s Indigenous American Artist Support Grant is an unrestricted $5,000 award, granted by an external jury of culture workers and community members, to an individual, collective, or collaborative duo making outstanding work in any discipline. Applicants who claim Native North, Central, or South American ancestry are encouraged to apply.
Practitioners working at the intersection of art and activism to combat the legacy of colonialism by asserting Indigenous peoples’ sovereignty, reconstructing and reclaiming language, preserving cultural land-use practices, and expanding artistic traditions are especially encouraged to apply.
