Repaint History Call For Art



Sara Rossberg


Kavel Rafferty



 About the Call:


We at Repaint History are excited to announce the launch of our 2021 Artist Funding! This year, Repaint History is committing to a total fund starting at $5,000 (CAD). This fund will be shared with artists in a form of four juried Call For Arts throughout the year.

This artist fund is created with a single purpose – to support women artists by providing them with a financial incentive and publicity.

About the Call

The Fund: The prize in the amount of $1,880 CAD (increased from $1,250 CAD) will be shared between 3 artists (min. $625 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. Our previous fund started at $1,000 (CAD) and increased to $3,300 (CAD). As a result, 6 artists equally received a total of $550 (CAD).

Apply Once Enroll TwiceTimes are hard and we know and understand that as an artist you have a limited budget for all the calls out there. So, in order to help and support you, when you apply for one of Repaint History calls, we will enroll you for the next one for FREE. Note: this only applies to applicants who are not selected as a final recipient of the fund.

Get Featured: In addition to the fund, the selected artists will be interviewed and profiled on two different platforms. Repaint History is thrilled to collaborate with She Curates, the increasingly popular platform amongst contemporary artists on this call. All the final recipients of this call will be interviewed and profiled on both She Curates and Repaint History social media platforms and website. 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.

About She Curates: She Curates is a platform founded and curated by Independent Curator Mollie E Barnes. The platform was started in UK Lockdown 2020, created from a desire to champion the women artists online that Mollie had been championing in physical exhibitions and shows that had suddenly been postponed or cancelled. With a focus on collaboration, accessibility, safety, empowerment and inclusion, She Curates has amassed a global audience, and worked with some incredible brands and collaborators around the world. Mollie has some incredibly exciting projects coming up to champion and support women artists and arts professionals throughout 2021 and beyond, beginning with her extended collaboration with Repaint History!
