Call For Art Grant Proposal Submissions!
Funding for Decompression Projects Now Available
Calling all artists! Boston Decompression is excited to announce that this year we will be distributing art grants to artists for Boston Decompression 2014! This is a big step forward for the event. The success of Boston Decompression in recent years and the support of our community has put us in a position to offer these grants. If you have an existing art piece that you would like to bring or an idea for a new project you would like to contribute to this year’s event, please fill out the online Boston Decompression art grant application form with the details of your proposal. The grants committee will be considering both proposals for new works and submissions of existing works of visual and performance art in any 2D or 3D medium. Work that is responsive to this year's theme ("The Lost City") or that helps to transform the space will be given extra consideration.
Grants will primarily fund the materials and consumables costs for artwork, and, potentially, transportation costs for art coming from outside the Boston area. The Decom Art Committee will work with Boston area artists to arrange shared transportation.
Here is the timeline for the art grants process:

Funds will be transferred to the recipient via bank transfer unless arranged otherwise. The remaining 25-percent of the grant amount will be delivered to the recipient two weeks after the 2014 Decompression event in which the funded art piece/project has been featured and/or contributed.
