COVID-19 UPDATE: Please check with individual organizations and venues for specific requirements regarding mask mandates.
The Kinkade Family Foundation is proud to administer a new Emergency Grant for curators who are developing projects that promote artwork of contemporary and experimental nature. The Emergency Grant provides funding for a curatorial project that sheds light on the world during this time of darkness. Priority will be given to curators who have a venue secured for their project and are greatly impacted by the challenges we are facing due to COVID-19.
The program will provide one-time grants of up to $5,000 for unexpected emergencies related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The grant is available to curators who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the United States, District of Columbia, or U.S. Territories. If you aren’t sure if your discipline fits within these guidelines, please contact the grants administrator.
HOW TO APPLY
Emergency Grants applications are accepted through emailing a PDF proposal of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include up to a 500 word statement proposal with up to 10 supporting images, up to a 250 word statement on why you should receive the grant, examples of past exhibitions, related press, and biography.
WHEN TO APPLY
Applications are accepted immediately and through April 12th, 2020 to meet curators needs in a timely manner. KFF’s panel will meet in the middle of April. We review applications received within a shorter timeline, but please keep in mind that you may not hear back from KFF until May. Applicants should not request more funding than needed.
