Deadline: The Idea Fund


Round Ten Application Open

Deadline: MONDAY NOVEMBER 6, 2017

Apply Now!

What types of projects will be funded?
The Idea Fund is committed to new, risk-taking forms that help to define new practices in contemporary art. The Idea Fund favors projects that exemplify unconventional, participatory or social practice, conceptual, innovative or entrepreneurial, or activist artistic practices that occur outside of the traditional frameworks of support. Works that are eligible for conventional sources of funding are highly unlikely to be awarded.

A panel of professionals will select between 12-14 projects submitted by individual artists, curators, performers, collectives or collaboratives that must be completed by December 31, 2018.

Who can apply?
The Idea Fund supports individual artists, curators, collectives, collaboratives or partnerships. If applying as a group, the artistic group can be long-standing or created specifically for this project; however, the lead member of the group must be living and working in the greater Houston area.
