SPACES’s Satellite Fund offers project-based grants to artists, curators and cultural producers to create a public visual art project (in-person or virtual) in Cuyahoga County. In 2020 the Satellite Fund grant program was temporarily refocused to better serve artists affected by the current pandemic and economic crisis. Now Satellite Fund is returning to project-based granting and is committed to supporting as many artists as possible with this opportunity. For that reason, The Satellite Fund has provided grants of $3,000 each to 20 artists or artist collectives in 2021.
“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.”
