CALLING ALL WOMXN ARTISTS!
This new artist fund is created with a single purpose – to support womxn artists by providing them with a financial incentive and publicity.
About the Fund: The prize in the amount of 2,000 CAD (increased from 1,000) will be shared between 4 or more artists (min. $500 per artist). To maximize the number of recipients and the size of the fund, 20% of each application fee will be contributed towards the total prize money. The more submissions we receive, the larger the fund will grow and more artists will be selected for the prize. In addition to the fund, the recipients will be interviewed and profiled on Repaint History’s website and social media accounts. If you are not a recipient of the fund you might still be contacted for your work to be profiled on Repaint History's social media accounts.
