The Futures Fund is a regranting initiative organized by The Luminary and funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in order to support innovative, experimental and future-focused artistic projects throughout the St. Louis region. Futures Fund was founded in 2019 to provide essential support to artist projects that exemplify the unique possibilities of St. Louis, deeply engage its past, present and possible futures, and model new ways of working within our region.
Futures Fund is now open for applications for 2022 for grants ranging from $2,500 to $8,000. Funded proposals will take innovative approaches to the urgent questions of our moment; create lasting impact on its intended publics; exemplify equity at all levels; and display originality within the region and nation. Key considerations for applications will include: How does this project move the region forward? What distinguishes this project from others happening regionally and nationally? If the project is successful, what impact will it have made on its communities and audiences?
Applications for the fourth cycle close April 20. Apply today.
