CUE 2020 Grant Cycle is Open

“Apply for a $1000 grant to produce an art project in any discipline.

Grants are for artists who are new-generation artists living and working on the margins, and facing systemic barriers to accessing professional arts opportunities.

CUE is a radical arts initiative dedicated to supporting new generation artists who live and work on the margins. Throughout history, some of the most innovative artwork has been created by artists who experience marginalization and face systemic barriers, and who have been excluded by conventional arts and cultural institutions. We recognize that arts funding agencies have often not adapted to growing social, cultural, and economic inequality.

In response, CUE has designed an accessible funding program offering not only financial support for art projects, but also consultation in preparing project proposals, support throughout the production process, and opportunities for public exhibition”
