Alumnx Council Seed Grants
Alumnx Council Grants are a way the Institute gives back to alumnx artists through seed funding for projects and happenings that promote alumnx community connection, collaboration, inclusion, and impact on the arts. Proposals that are collaborative, experimental, reflect our community’s diversity, and involve the participation of multiple alumnx are encouraged. This initiative values partnership among CalArts, the alumnx community, and the Alumnx Council.
Grants may be applied toward expenses such as, but not limited to, production, equipment, rentals, supplies, hospitality, printing, promotions, etc. Proposed projects should be open to/shareable with the alumnx community; weblinks, prints, exhibits, RSVP and/or registration (for events) are allowable and recommended. The goal is for the end product to be accessible to the alumnx community.
Twelve grants of $500 each will be awarded between two cycles (six in each cycle) in the 2019-20 year. These grants are funded by the Office of Alumnx Engagement via the CalArts Fund, the primary vehicle by which alumnx support their schools, scholarships, students, and initiatives such as this.
