Grants of up to $6,000 to Florida artists and arts professionals in eligible regions for public arts projects. Funding is intended to support innovative local works that encourage critical dialogue and thought, and expose audiences to creative artistic practices that are typically under-recognized by traditional venues in Miami-Dade County. The very nature of these projects spring from a cultural landscape that is endlessly diverse, nuanced, and equally defined by what is within and beyond its watery borders.
Whether receiving funds to continue a substantial body of work or to conduct research, all projects must engage or be made accessible to the public in Miami-Dade County via process, presentation, production, or publication. Manifestations may include exhibitions, performances, events, lectures, workshops, screenings, readings, publications, residencies, programming of artist-run-spaces, online projects, etc. Support for curatorial or publication (print or online) projects must be for original projects with significant collaborations with artist(s) in Miami-Dade County and substantially contribute to contemporary art discourse in this area. Projects that connect or engage artists from different communities and areas throughout the County are strongly encouraged.
