We told you previously about the new Velocity Fund, a grant source that puts funds directly in the hands of Philadelphia artists working experimentally and/or collaboratively. The Velocity Fund is looking for your proposals! And, because you may have questions, the Fund’s management team is scheduling informational sessions at community locations, to take your questions and answer them. Read our post for more on The Velocity Fund. Applications are open until June 1, 2018. Funding up to $5,000 is available for one-year projects.

In April, 2018, two sessions are upcoming. Both are free but require registration at the links below.

A note from Dave Kyu…

A little about myself: I’ve built now a 10-year career that’s taken me through the halls of Philadelphia non-profit institutions, city government, public art agencies, educational institutions, and artist-run projects and spaces, as administrator, preparator, and artist. I’d like to share some of the insight I’ve gained on the topic of careers in the arts with those graduating students nervously and excitedly looking out into the abyss.
