Terra Foundation for American Art: Convening Grants

Grant funding is available for programs that foster exchange and collaboration, such as workshops, symposia, and colloquia. Programs should advance innovative and experimental research and professional practice in American art and address critical issues facing the field. Requests for convenings intended to inform projects in their early stages, which will benefit from the learning and practice that can be developed through dialogue are also welcome.

This program is open to organizations within and outside of the United States. Convenings held in person and/or online are eligible for support.

To be considered, visual art projects should focus on arts of the United States, including Native American arts. Projects can be focused on historical or contemporary art. Contemporary art projects should offer a reflective and critical engagement with histories, arts, and/or art histories associated with American contexts.

This application cycle is for programs taking place after September 1, 2023. LOIs are due December 9, 2022. Invited full proposals will be due February 24, 2023.
