Announcing 2021 Artist2Artist Fellows
Art Matters Foundation is pleased to announce the pilot year of a new regranting program titled Artist2Artist, where our grant recipients — artists — act as grant-makers. Last year, Art Matters expanded its definition of artist by recognizing a broader category of culture workers, granting support to people organizing mutual aid, community engagement, and alternative support structures for artists. Building on this shift, Artist2Artist represents a new approach to giving by entrusting artists to activate Art Matters’ mission of assisting artists breaking ground aesthetically and socially. This evolving horizontal model of granting is created to affirm artists’ specialized knowledge of their communities.
