Forecast seeks to fund a diverse group of artists working in a range of public art practices and media. We place particular emphasis on supporting and amplifying the artistic work of artists of color, female artists, LGBTQ artists, immigrant artists, artists from rural communities, as well as non-traditional public artists. It is our value that our applicants, panelists, and grantees reflect the racial, cultural, gender, artistic, and geographic diversity of our state, and the stories and perspectives of the artists and communities we serve. Artists of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
Our experienced staff consult with artists on a sliding fee basis on such topics as career planning, project proposals, project management, and logistical questions that arise while creating public work. Contact email@example.com with questions.
