Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of up to $6,000 to Florida artists, arts professionals, collectives, and artist-run venues for publicly accessible art projects in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support innovative art projects that are accessible to the public during any or all stages of production, publication, process, or presentation. Eligible applicants are those that are located in Miami-Dade County.

Each year, WaveMaker at Locust Projects awards grant funding to artists, curators, and collectives across Miami-Dade County in the following three categories:

New Work / Projects: Grants to support artist-centric new work / projects.   

Long-Haul Projects: Grants to support the implementation, continuation, or completion of a long-term project. This category values the time, focus, and determination required to pursue long-term artistic endeavors.

R&D / Implementation: Grants to support research and development for ambitious new projects that benefit from a longer planning period. After the R&D phase, grantees are encouraged to apply for up to $4,000 in funding to implement their projects.

All projects must be accessible to the public via process, presentation, production, or publication. Presentations are intended to take place in non-traditional, non-institutional spaces, and not in nonprofit museums or commercial galleries.
