Todd Samara Art Fund Call For Proposals

The fourth annual Todd Samara Art Fund Award is now accepting proposals from artists in all genres of art practice, including not just visual arts but also music, performance, and literary arts. Applicants must reside or work in the city of Kingston. The award of $1,200 was designed for proposals from emerging and established contemporary artists, art educators, and/or curators for a project to take place in the City of Kingston. The amount of funding is flexible, and multiple awards may be considered.

Applicants need to send a short description of their project or describe a need related to their art practice they deem worthy of funding, along with a one-page CV and up to eight images or links to videos. In judging creative work of merit, factors that will be considered by the committee include: originality of conception, quality of execution and/or craft, professionalism of presentation, and visibility and/or engagement with the community, particularly as it pertains to under-served communities and the education of under-resourced youth. Given the reliance on remote communication options during the pandemic, works or a project that can be shared digitally in innovative ways will also be a consideration.  Proposals should be submitted to samaraproject@madkingston.org by September 15, 2022. The award will be announced at MAD’s annual fundraiser event on Sunday, November 6th.
