The Platforms Fund is a collaborative effort of Antenna, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, and JuneBug Productions to provide support for the development and presentation of self-organized artistic projects in and around New Orleans. The Platforms Fund seeks to emphasize New Orleans’ historical characteristics of creativity, collaboration, and resiliency, while pushing the boundaries of where community engagement and the dissemination of creative ideas can intersect. The Platforms Fund will provide grants of up to $10,000 to a diverse array of artist-driven projects that are ambitious, accessible, and experimental in nature. The Platforms Fund intends to support projects that will expand the arts ecosystem of the New Orleans region by charting unmapped territory in the structures and production of artistic projects.
“Our grants help to ensure that a broad range of artistic voices participate in cultural dialogue around issues of pressing local, regional and national concern.”
