Introducing: GRAND GRANTS!

Grand Grants!

The Deakin Arts Participation Incubator is devoted to sparking initiatives that explore exciting new ways for audience participation in the arts. And now we need your help!

The API Grand Grants is an experimental new participatory initiative in community generosity that will enable our API community to collaborate with the artists we’re inspired by.

With your help, we are crowd-sourcing quarterly grants from our API community. By pooling together your donations we will gift 2 artists with a $1000 cash grant to support them to prototype an exciting, innovative new project that pushes the boundaries of audience engagement in the arts.

The API will provide this grant with no strings attached, and will claim no ownership over the resulting project.

… Did that get your attention?
