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.
