The Grit Fund (TGF) provides monetary awards--up to $7,000--to encourage the presentation and development of projects that contribute to the vibrancy and development of Baltimore’s arts and cultural landscape.The Grit Fund recognizes there are many structural barriers preventing independent artists, and arts-based cultural organizers, from accessing traditional funding that can advance their work and benefit their communities. TGF prioritizes artistic initiatives that present opportunities for artists, cultural workers and community members to develop unexpected collaborations that investigate place and space. We accept proposals from unincorporated artist-led/organized initiatives that utilize the visual arts as a means to produce collaborative public facing projects. Baltimore based artists are eligible to apply. Grit Fund projects must take place in Baltimore City or County and be accessible to the general public. Funded activities may include but are not limited to: exhibitions, publications, public events, public/place based art, film screenings, the ongoing work of an existing arts venue or collective, and the founding of a new arts venue or collective.
