In the spirit of embracing contemporary culture at its core and edges, the Flourish Fund supports artist organized projects in Southeast Michigan that are experimental and risk-taking, shared with the public, and embrace contemporary, creative possibilities for the future of arts and culture. 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. Proposed projects may include works across mediums and disciplines, from sculpture to projection mapping, printmaking to immersive technology, and beyond, but must have a strong foundation in the visual arts.
“Our grantees range from small arts organizations with one staff member to major museums, yet they all provide essential resources for artists as well as innovative platforms for critical cultural dialogue. Creative risk-taking is at the heart of this country’s most meaningful social, political, and cultural developments, therefore we are proud to stand behind artist-centered organizations that support experimental practice.”
