Searching for grants

Money – I think this a topic many artists and people in the arts hate talking about. The reason is mostly because of the difficulty of attaining it. I have problems with getting it for the residency as well, and it pains me that the artists invited must pay some of the costs. I’m working as hard as I can to reduce these costs to a minimum.

Below are some funding resources. These can be helpful even for those artists who will not participate in the residency this year.

Of course, good places to start are local Arts Councils, Associations and Foundations, local Polish organizations (i.e. Polish-American associations). If any of you have good sources or leads, please add them in the comments and I will try to add them to this list. The list below is of course tailored mostly to the needs of artists going on residencies, but not exclusively. I hope it is of help for everyone.

ChangingRoom – Big online database

Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe

Foundation Center

Kulturkontakt Nord Mobility Program

Lab for Culture

Open Art Projects

European Cultural Foundation Mobility Grants

Andy Warhol Foundation (may be for institutions only)

If I find anything else, I will update this post. Please let me know if any of the links aren’t working.

P.S. – If any of you have good funding resources for NGOs in Europe, specifically Poland, I would be much obliged.
