The Black Rock Arts Foundation is accepting grant proposals from now through March 13th. To give you an idea of the types of projects they fund, here are some words from the site:

“We fund interactive art. We fund art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope and prompts the viewer to act. We like art that can be experienced in more ways than visually. We are fans of art that is meant to be touched, heard or experienced, as well as viewed. We prioritize funding art that involves the audience in its creation and presentation.

Black Rock Arts Foundation gives grants to individual artists or artist collectives that create interactive artworks destined for communities in the world at large; there are no geographic restrictions placed on those who can apply.”

Pictured above is 2008 grant winner The Giving Tree by Archaic Customs. Other 2008 winners include the Sanlun Yishu by Lee Somers and Elisabeth Pellathy:

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
