Thrive Grants program, managed by Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, encourages artists to take risks and engage audiences in new ways. The program believes artists throughout Oklahoma have the creativity and potential to push the boundaries of the state’s visual culture, and this fund will offer them the opportunity to thrive in ways not previously possible.
Thrive Grants will fund 12 artist-led, collaborative projects from across the state of Oklahoma though grants of $5,000 each. The funded projects will culminate in a public-facing program such as a non-traditional exhibition, performance, screening, or another publicly accessible outcome. The grants will prioritize artist projects that create new collaborations, connections, and partnerships. This cross-disciplinary approach strengthens outcomes and fuels creativity.
