Deadline: 1 October 2020
Open to: artists (individuals, collaborations, or collectives)
Benefits: a maximum amount of USD 5,000 per grant
These grants support artists (individuals, collaborations, or collectives) to develop their practice. This program is specially directed to those inventing new forms of creating and sharing arts knowledge with others, and for those aiming to question the current arts making paradigm; therefore they encourage eccentric and critical proposals challenging traditional arts genres and discourses. Among other activities, the grants can be used to pursue threads of research, stage an event, make new work, publish, travel, take part in a residency or workshop, organize meetings and gatherings, or present an exhibition or performance.
- The proposal must be achievable and completed within twelve months of the grant submission deadline;
- Production and post-production for feature films are not eligible;
- Applications to attend degree-based study programs (such as MAs or PhDs) are out of the grant program’s scope and will not be considered;
- Aiming for balanced professional relationships, Mophradat does not support applications to cover the costs and fees of artists invited to run a workshop, administer, or curate projects in Europe or North America that fall under categories of (temporary) employment in those contexts, and should be covered by those hosts’ institutional budgets.
The grants can cover part or all of the proposed activity or project. Between fifteen and thirty grants are awarded each calendar year depending on the available budget, with a maximum amount of USD 5,000 per grant.
