CultureSource is proud to announce its 2023-2024 recipients of the Flourish Fund grant program. 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.
“Each year, we are thrilled to receive so many exciting applications from artists who are pushing the boundaries of visual arts across many different mediums. This year’s cohort is no exception and we are proud to announce six grants have been made to support the work of regional arts administrators and creative entrepreneurs.” – Adam Des Jardins, Director of Grantmaking
