WaveMaker Grants brings critical support to the growing number of innovative, artist-driven endeavors that make up Miami-Dade County’s burgeoning cultural landscape. WaveMaker Grants focuses on experimental, artist-centric projects and activities that operate without traditional funding sources and outside the demands of the marketplace.
WaveMaker Grants Cycle will provide a limited number of cash awards totaling $60,000 to visual artists, curators, creative/arts writers, cultural organizers, collectives, collaboratives, partnerships, and artist-run spaces currently residing in Miami-Dade County.
Whether receiving funds to conduct research or to continue a substantial body of work, all projects must engage or be made accessible to the public in Miami-Dade County via process, presentation, production, or publication. Manifestations may include exhibitions, performances, events, lectures, workshops, screenings, readings, publications, residencies, programming of artist-run-spaces, online projects, etc. Support for curatorial or publication (print or online) projects must be for original projects with significant collaborations with artist(s) in Miami-Dade County and substantially contribute to contemporary art discourse in our region. Projects that connect or engage artists from different communities/areas throughout the County are strongly encouraged.Guidelines & Eligibility
