South Arts grant clears your art career for takeoff

Time to aim for the sky, #SCartists

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, May 13, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. ET

South Arts recognizes that an invitation to participate in a major, milestone opportunity is not always enough.

Even with stipends or payments, overall expenses can make such an opportunity inaccessible. In order to ensure that artists from our region can take full advantage of major opportunities, South Arts offers Individual Artist Career Opportunity Grants.

The Individual Artist Career Opportunity Grant supports a milestone opportunity in an individual artist’s career that is likely to lead to substantial and significant career advancement. Grants of up to $2,000 are available to support opportunities taking place between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023.

Some examples of opportunities that match the intent of this program include, but are not limited to:

  • Accepting an invitation to exhibit, sell, screen, present, read or perform work in a significant in-person forum such as a renowned/major festival, invitational exhibit, invitational/juried showcase, etc.
  • Participating in a residency to research/create a body of work and build network connections
  • Travel associated with a significant career-building activity
