Vancouver regional Decompression 2011

Art Grant Application

Applicants interested in receiving GVIAS funding for bringing artwork to the event, creating artwork for the event, or creating an interactive experience for participants should contact: gvias-grants-committee@gvias.org

— Deadline Sept 26th

What kind of art do we fund?

We fund interactive art. We fund art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope and prompts the viewer to interact. We like art that can be experienced in more ways than visually. We are fans of art that is meant to be touched, heard or experienced, as well as viewed. We prioritize funding art that involves the audience in its creation and presentation.

We are hoping for a variety of interactive art including performances (dance, music, theatre, performance art), visual (painting, drawing, sculpture), media (sound, film, video, new media) and combination of all art disciplines.

What will the grant cover?

The grant will pay for a portion of production costs. It will cover some or all material, asset, or rental costs, but not for time/labor. As a matter of principle, it is preferred that you develop various kinds of non -monetary resources, such as support from friends and reuse of equipment and recycling of supplies. This effort on your part encourages collaboration and cooperation within our extended community. Typically, a grant will cover up to 50% of the project cost, and the artist is expected to raise some funds themselves.
