Now Seeking Arts Forward Non-profit Partners
As we get closer to introducing 'Artist Grants' into Society6, we'd love to ask for your help in identifying those Arts related Non-profit Organizations that you feel would be in alignment with our mission of providing a platform for Artists to get the resources required to realize their best work, on their own terms.

We knew there was a problem with the "way things are" when we started to go to Non-profit websites only to be confronted with the words, "We do not accept unsolicited applications..." effectively eliminating any chance for an emerging artist to be considered. Our hope is that we can help the Artist's voice become larger than its own.

If you know of any Non-profit Arts organizations that would like to discuss the benefits of Partnering with Society6 in order to issue Grants to Artists from around the world, please let us know who they by 'commenting' here or via the contact form here http://www.society6.com/help/contact. If you have a specific Contact, or would like to make a referral, all the better!

We believe that emerging talent deserves the same opportunities as established Artists and we're looking for Partners that feel the same way.

thanks everyone!

How about NYFA (http://www.nyfa.org/login.asp?id=8) Its a bit New York specific, but they do provide a user friendly way to apply for grants.

Great idea, btw! Artists grants are so confusing and unfriendly to apply for.

I recommend reaching out to the folks at INCUBATE Chicago - they have an amazing collection of resources about what they have termed the "non-profit industrial complex" - in which they posit the very framework and nature of a non-profit arts administration organization actually inhibits artistic process based on variables such as funding processes. Check them out here: http://www.incubate-chicago.org/otheroptions
Perhaps looking at alternative models of funding may be a good idea as well such as workers cooperatives - http://www.greenworker.coop/website_j/

wow Christopher, incubate is a really great suggestion. Interesting to read that they are not 501c3 non-profit and that they are working outside of this traditional framework, due to its limitations. Just like S6!

woohoo! Christopher thanks for further validating that we're not alone in our assertions here at S6...
