LINC Award: Space for Change

Posted: Friday, July 17th, 2009 at 4:06 pm in News

Levering Investments in Creativity (LINC) announces an open application process for awards recognizing innovation and best practices in development of artist spaces.

In November 2009, up to five winning projects will receive MetLife Innovative Space Awards (ISA) ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. Made possible through a funding collaborative of the Ford Foundation and the Metlife Foundation, the awards will recognize and promote successful artist spaces that exhibit innovation, affordability, sustainability and positive community impact.  Winning projects will demonstrate the role that affordable artist spaces play in community revitalization, as well as replicable and sustainable models for artist space development.

All entries are due by August 24, 2009, no later than 5 PM (EDT). Contact LINC at or (646) 731-3275 for more information.
