Kindling Fund Info Session
The event continues at 6pm with a special informational session on The Kindling Fund, which supports the energy of Maine’s visual arts community by funding innovative, artist-organized projects that engage the public in ways that are both inventive and meaningful. The fund is currently accepting applications for its 2017 round of grants.
The Fund seeks to support a variety of publicly accessible projects, with a strong interest in alternative spaces/practices and site-specific presentations that don’t fit in established institutions or venues.
For those not able to attend the informational session in Bangor, visit the Space Gallery website for alternative session dates & locations.
