labotanica – new artist grants, projects and archives

October 6, 2007 § Leave a comment

A friend and fellow artist, Ayanna, has a great new project up and running. It’s called labotanica, also the name of her blog, and includes a grant for small works, a magazine, and an archive. Based in community support, she seeks to redefine what’s possible in politics, poetics, and everyday life. Check out the site. I’ve included the grant info below:

“New grants offer small support for creative projects that intersect poetics and social transformation. Offered twice a year, grants are supported by ten dollar donations from the public. Grant awards vary depending on total donations contributed by the deadline. To apply, artists must submit 500 word proposal, work sample, application and ten dollar donation. Program is developed from a belief that funding can be accessible and reciprocal. labotanica funds small scale projects that have the potential to multiply and be much more. Works of all media and genres are considered, and applicants of all backgrounds encouraged to apply. Grants deadlines are twice a year in January and June. The next deadline is January 15. 2008.” Apply here.
