  • Digital Art History Scholar Grants

    J. Paul Getty Trust
    Deadline: Ongoing
    http://www.getty.edu/foundation/initiatives/current/dah/index.html

    The term "digital art history" has become a shorthand reference to the potentially transformative effect that digital technologies hold for the discipline of art history.

The latest tools and techniques allow researchers to handle large volumes of digitized images and texts, trace patterns and connections formerly hidden from view, recover the past in virtual environments, and bring the complex intricacies of works of art to light as never before, to name just a few opportunities. Through its new initiative, the Getty Foundation is providing grants that allow art historians to explore the opportunities and challenges presented by these technologies.

  • Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative

    J. Paul Getty Trust

Based on meticulous research, these catalogues make available detailed information about the individual works in a museum's collection, ensuring the contents a place in art history. Yet printed volumes are costly to produce and difficult to update regularly; their potential content often exceeds allotted space. One could say they are like thoroughbred horses confined to stock pens.

    Digital publishing presents an alternative, and the Getty Foundation's Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI) is helping museums make the transition from printed volumes to multimedia, web-based publications freely available to anyone with a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

    https://www.lef-foundation.org/DefaultPermissions/MovingImageFund/tabid/160/Default.aspx

    The goal of LEF New England is to fund the work of independent documentary film and video artists in the region, and to broaden recognition and support for their work, both locally and nationally. It also supports programs that highlight the rich history and ongoing legacy of innovation within New England’s independent film community.

    LEF New England launched the Moving Image Fund (MIF) in 2002 to support new film and video work. The Moving Image Fund provides funding across all phases of production, supporting films from the early risk-taking stage, through a film’s completion. In this way, MIF offers a continuum of support for selected projects, while also identifying new talent. The peer review panel process lies at the heart of LEF's grant review, inviting non-fiction filmmakers and professionals from a diversity of perspectives in the field to evaluate and make recommendations on LEF's production and post-production applications. This panel is anonymous, and changes every year.

    Through MIF, LEF New England champions work that is provocative, heartfelt, and challenging in style and substance. Since its inception, LEF’s Moving Image Fund has supported over 300 independent filmmaker projects with approximately $4 million in funding. The overarching goal of LEF New England’s philanthropic investment is to help build a sustainable and strong community of support for artists and their work.

    The National Film Preservation Foundation invites applications for the Avant-Garde Masters Grants. These cash preservation grants, made possible in partnership with The Film Foundation, support laboratory work to preserve significant examples of America's avant-garde film heritage. The grants are available to nonprofit and public archives. Funding is generously provided by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation.

    By its very nature avant-garde film is hard to define. Avant-garde film is generally produced and distributed outside mainstream film channels. Often created by a single filmmaker or a small team, these films are intended as artistic expressions. They often experiment with the film medium in unique and personal ways.

    This grant supports the preservation of a film or films by a single filmmaker or from a cinematic group significant to the development of avant-garde film in America. Works made within the last twenty years are not eligible. Applications should show how the proposed titles have made a significant contribution to American experimental film or, if the works are lesser known today, demonstrate how the films will contribute to a better understanding of avant-garde film history. Proposals must also explain why the proposed films are in need of preservation and include plans detailing how the films will be made available to the public and the scholarly community.

  • Project Grants

    New Music USA
    Previous Deadline: 12/21/20
    https://newmusicusa.org/program/project-grants/

    Our approach to project grants is driven by two core convictions. First, that the best way to serve new music is to ask practitioners what they need rather than tell them what they should want. Second, that the process for requesting financial support should be simple and should help artists connect with audiences, not just funders. Applicants are asked to present their projects using the same language and media they would use to build public interest in their work. Our goal is to make grantmaking less about grant writing, and focus instead on how artists naturally talk about their work. We’re especially interested in having our funds go towards paying artists directly for their work; whether that’s creating, engaging, performing, or something else. We place special emphasis on funds towards the creation of new musical work, new live music for dance, recording costs, residency and community outreach activities.

    The Puffin Foundation Ltd. continues to make grants that encourage emerging artists whose works might have difficulty being aired due to their genre and/or social philosophy. We're interested in art that educates the public on topical issues. For example, projects that seek to enrich and inform the public on important subjects such as the environment, social justice, civil rights and other contemporary issues facing the country (and the planet), that some organizations might hesitate to fund. The Foundation does not have the means to fund large film/documentary proposals, grants for travel, continuing education, or the writing or publishing of books. For the 2019 cycle we will review grants only in the following fields: Fine Arts and Video/Film.
