Atlanta Contemporary is pleased to announce the third and final installment of the Nexus Fund. 

Beginning in 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nexus Fund provides cash grants to both individual artists and artist-run projects existing within the Metro Atlanta area. Generously funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts, the Nexus Fund has already distributed $120,000 to Atlanta artists and this third installment will raise that amount to $180,000.

The Nexus Fund is composed of two arms: the Emergency Relief fund, and the Regional Regranting Program. The Emergency Relief fund, in this installment, provide $500 cash grants to 20 individual artists who have experienced hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Regional Regranting Program will distribute $5,000 cash grants to 10 artist-run projects engaging with and benefiting Atlanta communities.

Important information

  • There is no application fee for either submission form.
  • Application deadline for both granting arms is 11:59 p.m. on January 8, 2023.
  • Submissions will be conducted through Submittable.
  • Submissions are limited to one per artist/project.
