The Young Space Grant is an initiative to give back to individual artist and art workers (curators, art writers, etc.) who dedicate time, energy, and resources to not only their own practice, but to additional artist-organized initiatives and projects. A portion of fees from open calls are earmarked for the grants, which are awarded on a rolling basis after each open call, or as funds become available.
