The Velocity Fund

This Deadline Expired: Friday, June 7, 2019

The Velocity Fund directly supports artists to organize new collaborative projects throughout the city of Philadelphia by awarding grants up to $5000. Philadelphia’s visual artists are a diverse community of makers and thinkers from multiple social, economic and cultural backgrounds; The Velocity Fund is open to a wide range of experimental practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration between artistic genres leading to expanded audiences, fresh outcomes and an enriched multi-disciplinary discourse.

In 2017, The Velocity Fund was established by Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts becoming the 12th Regional Regranting Program nationwide.
