Complete Guide to 2020 Artist Grants and Opportunities

There are endless opportunities for artists who know where to look. 

Artwork Archive scoured the internet and compiled the best opportunities for 2020—so you only have to look in one place. 

Each year they send their team on a mission to find the best opportunities, artist grants, and calls-for-entry for artists. From that, they created a list of the top international open calls, residencies, fellowships, and awards that they believe will benefit artists during the upcoming year.

The complete list is broken down into four categories: grants, residencies, calls-for-entry, and opportunity sites.

Wired for Creativity

Thursday September 27th marked the opening of this year’s Clifford Symposium, celebrating “Creativity and Collaboration.” With more than 30 events across multiple academic and artistic disciplines, the weekend offered everything from music and dance performances to panels on peacekeeping and entrepreneurship.

The annual occasion, which falls near the start of each academic year, is named for Nicholas R. Clifford, who taught history at the College from 1966 to 1993 and is a champion of critical inquiry. This year’s symposium was hosted by the Kevin P. Mahaney ’84 Center for the Arts in honor of its 20th anniversary.

Middmag caught the kick-off energy of the evening’s keynote speaker, Julie Burstein, and opening wire-walking event with the following video Dispatch:
