CultureSource is proud to announce the recipients of our Flourish Fund grant for the 2021 cycle. Six artists were awarded $10,000 to support collaborative projects that are experimental, shared with the public, and embrace contemporary creative possibilities for the future of arts and culture.
In the spirit of embracing contemporary culture at its core and edges, grants were made to artists at various stages of their careers working on multidisciplinary projects that center the visual arts. Annually, the Flourish Fund offers six grants of $10,000 each to support artists for these innovative, public-facing projects across the seven counties of Southeast Michigan.
