Urgent Art Fund Info Session

Part of Urgent Art Fund



Urgent Art Fund Info Session The Urgent Art Fund is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture through the Support for Artists grant.  

Want to apply to the Urgent Art Fund but have no idea where to start? Then you should attend our UAF info session, which will walk you through the application process step by step. Make sure to bring something to write on, something to write with and all your questions!

SPACES offers project-based support through The Urgent Art Fund to Cuyahoga County artists, supported by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. This support may go toward production expenses and artist commissions for the creation of “urgent art” that is socially, politically, or culturally responsive. We are designating funds specifically for such projects taking place in the public realm, helping artists immediately engage their community in dialogue about the most pressing issues.

In addition to financial support— $4,000 awarded to 12 artists/collectives —SPACES will provide access to our on-site artist workshops that are outfitted with tools and equipment to facilitate the production process. SPACES Artist Initiatives Coordinator will also assist grantees in securing a public display space (outside of SPACES) in Cuyahoga County. Grantees will receive a one-year SPACES Artist level Membership, which gives them free access to networking and artist professional development opportunities throughout the year.

Artists at any stage of their career are welcome to apply. For more info, visit
