Straight Talk on Funding for Queer Art

Straight Talk on Funding for Queer Art
Terence Diamond

Moving to Europe so that you can use rainbow money is not the only solution to get funded as a queer artist.

Queer artists face particular challenges when looking for funding for their work. Artists who aren’t already part of a network of the wealthy and powerful may find it difficult to secure grant funding. Below are some tough facts to get you started, and then we’ll cover a 6-step how-to guide for breaking through the noise and getting the grant of your dreams.

Tough Fact #1: There are No Quick Fixes.

Getting grant funding for your work is a long-term commitment. This comes as a surprise to a lot of young artists, some of whom are under the impression that there are people sitting at desks whose job it is to praise them and shower them with cash. If you are a recent graduate of a BFA or MFA program, while you were in school, you were most likely advised to take a practicum on the business of art. In the class, you learned about seeking grants to support your work. You may have been seduced by the great opportunities at the Pollack Foundation and the Guggenheim Fellowships, The Arch Brown Foundation, The Princess Grace Foundation, and so forth. You may have left the class with a sense of determination to win that first grant. You may have applied to all the foundations you heard about in  class. Even with a pristine proposal, you still probably got turned down. It’s easy to say to yourself, “Well, that was a waste of time.” and pack up your proposal materials under your bed and get a job in the Financial District. But stop!  How can you pick yourself up and try again?

Most foundations with a mission to support the arts are looking to add prestige value by association with an already well-known artist.

Keep in mind that the reason that many emerging queer artists fail at securing grant funding is that they lack a long-term cultivation strategy – a master plan that lays out the steps one needs to take to cultivate a funder. This strategy is grounded in the notion that each proposal submission is the first step of grantseeking.

Tough Fact #2: LGBT funders are a very small group.

Within that group, LGBT arts funders number in the dozens.

According to the latest information from Funders for LGBTQ Issues, the total number of LGBT-friendly foundations in the U.S. is 316. Of that pool, only thirty-four are exclusively LGBT private foundations. Competition is fierce and the stakes are high, so make sure that your proposals are polished and funding strategy is long-view. Again, don’t think about the next six months, think about the next six years.

Tough Fact #3:

The foundation world hates trying new things

Foundations, and the people who run them, are risk-averse. The fact is that most foundations with a mission to support the arts are looking to add prestige value by association with an already well-known artist. To accomplish this, they recruit consultants and program officers that are allegedly experts in their field. These folks are on staff because they (supposedly) have the ability to discern artistic merit and therefore advise their board of trustees on the worth of an artist’s or organization’s project. Unless it is a foundation priority to find and fund emerging or unknown artists, most mainstream foundations give grants to the same group of people, over and over again. There may be a place in their docket for only one or two “unknowns.” As an artist in the New York metro area, you are competing with thousands of other artists for that tiny slice of pie. As a self-identifed LGBT artist you’re vying with the entire LGBT queer community for a sliver. How do you break in?

Keep reading to find out the 6 things Queer Artists absolutely need to know about getting grant funding.

  1. I would also recommend starting small…San Francisco is a bit of an oddity for funding of queer artists but there are a lot of small, local funders that give out $500 – $1000 grants…getting a few of these, matched with local artist residencies and other local community involvement are a great first step to beginning a long-term career as a professional artist.

I’ve just cepmletod a makeup box using only handtools (yes, it’s a nightmare).My workshop is the kitchen so i’m not keen on investing in too much, but after watching your latest vid (routing for beginners) i’ve dusted off my dad’s old router and made a small table for it.Is it safe(ish) to just mount a jigsaw the same way for small pieces of wood?Loving all the videos, both inspiring and funny.

    • Pour ma part c’est cheveux méchés blonds et ma couleur naturelle est blonde foncée.Ca fait plus de deux ans que je les mèche et j’en suis satisfaite. Je précise que j’ai les cheveux courts donc tous les deux mois c’est coupe et comme il ne reste pas de mèches on en refait!!!

    • Taking the overview, this post hits the spot

    • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

    • It’s great to read something that’s both enjoyable and provides pragmatisdc solutions.

    • That insight’s just what I’ve been looking for. Thanks!

    • A minute saved is a minute earned, and this saved hours!

    • Youve got to be kidding me, folks are these parochial questions enlivening the Cliburn experience? This guy opens up a world of color and possibilities that modern audiences can relate to. This really isnt about museum curation. Its not about correctness. I have all the training, good ears, and lots of context. Bozhanov is correct enough for me. (Although I wish he had dialed back enough to avoid the many uninvited guests. But still.)

    • Cheers pal. I do appreciate the writing.

    • Your post has moved the debate forward. Thanks for sharing!

    • My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Yeah, that’s the ticket, sir or ma’am

    • Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

    • This is crystal clear. Thanks for taking the time!

    • This is a most useful contribution to the debate

    • I wanted to visit and allow you to know how , very much I liked discovering this blog today. I’d consider it a great honor to do things at my company and be able to utilize tips shared on your web site and also get involved in visitors’ responses like this. Should a position connected with guest author become available at your end, remember to let me know.

    • My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome blog!

    • Well done article that. I’ll make sure to use it wisely.

    • This website makes things hella easy.

    • I’m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something regarding this.

    • That’s a smart answer to a tricky question

    • If I communicated I could thank you enough for this, I’d be lying.

    • I am totally wowed and prepared to take the next step now.

    • En ce moment sous la douche, le gel cleanance d’avène ensuite crème hydratante d’avène si besoin l’effacera duo ( imperfections) de la roche posayLe soir le sebium H2O de bioderma ou le duo lait + lotion de chez caudalie et le cleanance K sur la zone T.Je cherche un contour des yeux, plus anti cernes, avec un effet frais, si quelqu’un peut me conseiller ?!C’est pas pour faire ma relou ( un peu quand même) mais j’attends toujours ma joliebox du mois

    • coucou mathilde! je suis platine limite blanc et comme tu dis c est un gouffre financier et impossible de me contenter d’un simple shampoing sinon effet paille assuré! mes 2 produits miracle: dop au karité et le masque bc bonacure de schwarzkopf c est le masque le plus puissant et efficace que j ai essayé et je l ai adopté.. Chaque mois je vois mes racines apparaitre et je me dis cette fois j’arrete tout je reviens a ma couleur d origine, puis je tombe sur une photo de star blonde ou toi meme et je renonce!!!!!

    • Cant go wrong with your early 80s picks, either, but those were before my time and I cant cheat on that one. I think almost inevitably, everyone thought of putting at least one of the LotR movies on there but Im surprised at the variety. For me, theres no question that Fellowship is the best of the three, but you really cant go wrong with any of em.

    • Did you notice about a month ago when Romney lost Minnesota et al. he stopped speaking because so much he came across as insensitive, trite and elitist – and was replaced with a more active wife. Ms. Romney coming to the stage was no accident and I am sure his handlers are thrilled that she may have some appeal. I don't recall hearing her say two words in 2008.-Tom Mullen

    • Your cranium must be protecting some very valuable brains.

    • I am glad to say I have never seen an episode of Ugly Betty since it comes on at the same time as Scrubs. Unfortunately, I have watched Grey’s Lobotomy. I was a regular watcher until this year…I can’t explain it, I can only throw myself at the mercy of the court and plead for forgiveness. I will do whatever penance to rid myself of the stench of it.Finally I am confused why Battlestar Galactica and the The Wire are continuously left out. I guess the true way to gauge the best shows is to see which are NOT nominated and go from there.

    • That insight would have saved us a lot of effort early on.

    • One thing I would really like to say is car insurance canceling is a feared experience and if you are doing the best things being a driver you may not get one. Some individuals do obtain the notice that they’ve been officially dropped by their insurance company and several have to struggle to get further insurance after having a cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates are often hard to get after having a cancellation. Having the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancellations can help owners prevent getting rid of in one of the most important privileges obtainable. Thanks for the thoughts shared via your blog.

    • Just wish to say your article is as astounding. The clarity in your post is just cool and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please carry on the gratifying work.

    • Thanks for every one of your efforts on this blog. My niece enjoys making time for investigations and it’s simple to grasp why. I hear all about the compelling way you offer efficient strategies via the website and foster participation from other people on the issue and our girl has always been being taught so much. Take advantage of the rest of the year. You have been conducting a fabulous job.

    • I suspect that Meb is going to discover power she never knew she had. The effects that will have on relations between her, Prince Medraut, and High Mage Aberinn will undoubtedly be interesting. I wonder why Prince Medraut doesn’t suspect Aberinn of being behind the attempt on his life?

    • I read your posting and was jealous

    • BION I’m impressed! Cool post!

    • Bonjour , quel belle surprisse de découvrir ce magnifique blog facile d’accès et très ludique . Le jour même ou je rentre avec mon 1er accordéon diatonique et complètement novice.Les vidéos sont vraiment un grand plus .Comment savoir sur la main droite si ont doit jouer sur la rangée extérieure ou intérieure ?Merci d’avance .

    • Appreciation for this information is over 9000-thank you!

    • That’s what we’ve all been waiting for! Great posting!

    • This website makes things hella easy.

    • Well Chez of the many and varied pick-up lines you have used over the last few decades, that one seems to have been a relative success.But on a serious note,I have not seen it explained in much detail exactly why CBGB is closing down. The rent got too high? The landlord won’t let them keep their dog?If it is because the location is no longer profitable, picking it up and recreating it almost in every detail in Las Vegas just seems cheezy. Like moving the London Bridge to Lake Havasu, Arizona.

    • Check that off the list of things I was confused about.

    • Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • Hallo,ich möchte anhand eines Beispiels klären, ob folgende Berechnung betreffend dem neuen Thema Schicksalspaläste richtig ist.Auf der Seite “Die 12 Schicksalspaläste”, steht bei “Wie geht man vor” unter Punkt 7.Verbindungen mit Wandlung eines Schicksalspalastes mit den Takten des GLZWenn zB. ein Ez. eines Palastes den Ez. eines Taktes und damit das Bewustsein wandelt.Beispiel: Takt 5 +EH+ (MB) interagiert mit den Schicksalspalast +MF+ (BB).EZ. Takt H+ verbindet sich mit EZ. Schicksalspalast F+ zu einer halben DreieeinigkeitKatalysator -W ist in der GD vorhanden, und wandelt zu Feuer, und damit den Takt vom müßigen ins begehrende Bewustsein!?Viele Grüße Helmut

    • What an awesome way to explain this-now I know everything!

    • Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent blog!

    • Apparently this is what the esteemed Willis was talkin’ ’bout.

    • Hey, subtle must be your middle name. Great post!

    • Woah nelly, how about them apples!

    • I’m impressed by your writing. Are you a professional or just very knowledgeable?

    • There is a critical shortage of informative articles like this.

    • It’s great to find an expert who can explain things so well

    • Furrealz? That’s marvelously good to know.

    • I’m impressed. You’ve really raised the bar with that.

    • I really needed to find this info, thank God!

    • Last one to utilize this is a rotten egg!

    • That’s a smart answer to a difficult question.

    • Hallelujah! I needed this-you’re my savior.

    • The genius store called, they’re running out of you.

    • I can’t believe I’ve been going for years without knowing that.

    • Slam dunkin like Shaquille O’Neal, if he wrote informative articles.

    • A simple and intelligent point, well made. Thanks!

    • That’s an inventive answer to an interesting question

    • Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    • Great hammer of Thor, that is powerfully helpful!

    • I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?|I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with? I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    • Why don’t you write a book about this experience. You hear more about brain tumors everyday and this particular procedure to remove them. I’m sure there is a wide audience of readers for this type of material who would relish the opportunity to hear from someone who actually experienced the fright, pain and amazing recovery. There is no one who could write it better.Just sayin.

    • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    • samuraiB: they just released some of his old films on DVD, so this one should make it too. after all, it’s a warner bro release… oic. J thinks the girls are cute. They just remind me of the bratty JC kids i used to teach ;Pjing: yah, the 1st 2 stories are really quite contrived. zero character motivation. Though i guess the security guard story is meant to provide some comic relief..

    • I really wish there were more articles like this on the web.

    • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    • A little rationality lifts the quality of the debate here. Thanks for contributing!

    • Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    • I suppose that sounds and smells just about right.

    • Hey John,Yeah, right now I’m wishing that there wasn’t quite so much traffic. Yesterday was a horrible mess. It took me hours to get the server back up. I’m using lunarpages.com. Their package worked great (and has worked great over the past months) until the first 10,000 visitors yesterday. Then everything failed. So I had to upgrade to a “enterprise” server. It’s not a crippling amount of money, but compared to the basic plan ($8/month) it’s expensive.-benmac

    • Great stuff from you. Ive read your stuff before and youre just too brilliant. I love what youve got here, love what youre saying and the way you say it. You make it entertaining and you still manage to keep it smart. I cant wait to scan more from you. This is really a great site.

    • Wow, this is in every respect what I needed to know.

    • Elle: Kiitos! Niinpä, itse ainakin kirjaan remonttia muistiin harrastuksena ja siksi, että joku muu voi ehkä saada inspiraatiota meiltä niinkuin itsekin saan sisustuslehdistä, blogeista, kavereitten kodeista. Tuskinpa kukaan haluaisi asua toisen kodissa, vaikka jotain ideaa omaansa sieltä saisikin. :)hansu: Neliöistä ei haisua, en löytänyt pohjapiirroksesta juurikaan numeroita, mutta tila on semmoinen melko perus keittiöolkkari. Ihan hyvän kokoinen, ehkä kuva vähän huijaa kun pituussuunnasta on jätetty kuvan ulkopuolelle melko monta metriä. :)

    • Action requires knowledge, and now I can act!

    • Articles like these put the consumer in the driver seat-very important.

    • You’re on top of the game. Thanks for sharing.

    • To John Roth:Thank you, John, for writing out the full names of the books you cited. It becomes tedious to try and remember the names of the entire Honorverse book collection now that it’s gotten past 20 books. Besides that I appreciate that we’re now back to Naval operations and near Mesa also!

    • It was dark when I woke. This is a ray of sunshine.

    • That’s a genuinely impressive answer.

    • I’m out of league here. Too much brain power on display!

    • I am totally wowed and prepared to take the next step now.

    • Hi there! Brilliant post! I’m a frequent visitor (far like addict ) to your website however , I had a question. I’m not likely certain whether its the right web site to question, but there are no spam comments. I get comments each day. Are you going to you assist me? Cheers!

    • The accident of finding this post has brightened my day

    • Ich habe nach dem goldenen Wagen Jin Yu geforscht und soviel herausbekommen: Die Bestimmungstabelle von Robert ist korrekt. Sie basiert auf dem oHs des Jahres und den Ez aller vier Säulen. Die Bedeutung hat mit Geld/Wohlstand zu tun. Vermutlich ist es so, dass eine starke Qi-Phase I den Wohlstand fördert und eine schwache Qi-Phase den Wohlstand eher mindert. Ich werde weiter nachforschen und den Geist gegen meine Personen-DB testen. Das wird aber einige Zeit dauern. Horst

    • I went to tons of links before this, what was I thinking?

    • Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your post is simply great and i could assume you are an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the gratifying work.

    • Short, sweet, to the point, FREE-exactly as information should be!

    • Finding this post has answered my prayers

    • I agree with this post. Facebook does appeal more to older crowds by having a more structured and uniform look. There’s more of a maturity device between myspace and facebook than a socio-economic divide. That’s where I feel Boyd’s article seemed outdated. I also agree that with the maturity that comes with facebook we lose the chance to be creative.

    • Together with every thing which appears to be building throughout this specific subject material, a significant percentage of opinions are actually rather refreshing. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your whole plan, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to me that your remarks are not completely validated and in fact you are generally your self not really fully confident of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate reading it.

    • It’s spooky how clever some ppl are. Thanks!

    • I was seriously at DefCon 5 until I saw this post.

    • Hehe never thought that our debate would be more entertaining then bertie and enda. And sorry for going a bit mad with my last post no offence meant or anything.Photo 9 does it for me this is by far the best one for me composition, colour etc is really nice to my eyes anyhow.

    • Heck yeah this is exactly what I needed.

    • Thanks for sharing. Your post is a useful contribution.

    • That insight’s just what I’ve been looking for. Thanks!

    • Thanks for sharing. Always good to find a real expert.

    • Thanks a ton for your post. I’d like to write my opinion that the cost of car insurance will vary from one insurance plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different facets which give rise to the overall cost. By way of example, the make and model of the car or truck will have a tremendous bearing on the cost. A reliable old family car will have a less expensive premium than a flashy racecar.

    • That hits the target dead center! Great answer!

    • If my problem was a Death Star, this article is a photon torpedo.

    • That’s not even 10 minutes well spent!

    • Super informative writing; keep it up.

    • I might be beating a dead horse, but thank you for posting this!

    • Thanks for sharing. Always good to find a real expert.

    • No question this is the place to get this info, thanks y’all.

    • Hey, Pam: Check out my blog post on Chicks That Trip for info on women traveling with like-minded people: Btw, I traveled alone on my first trip abroad. I recommend starting out with a country that has lots of English speakers, which most Western Europe countries do. Also, ask all your friends and co-workers if they know anyone in the country you’re interested in. Most people are happy to give you a little guidance.Good luck…

    • Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!

    • Glad I’ve finally found something I agree with!

    • No question this is the place to get this info, thanks y’all.

    • I am very grateful for the service that you are providing. I am subscribed to Lynda.com and your tutorials are a great complement for expanding the learning experience.If you be so kind and tell me where can I get info on how to conform text to a cylinder in C4D, I tried Wrap but I don’t know how to do it with text over text, like the Logo from Universal. Thanks.

    • Soit, c’est saugrenu…Mais en même temps l’idée vient d’un artiste. A discuter quoi qu’il en soit.Donc…Moi j’enverrai peut-être le commentaire ci-dessus pour montrer qu’il existe encore des gens qui, par la façon méprisante dont ils se réfèrent à un peuple, peuvent êtres qualifiés d’ « anti-américains primaires » pour ne pas dire « xénophobes ». Indécrottable bêtise viviannesque!

    • Ton post me fait peur mais ……….surtout rire !!!Je me marie le 28 juillet …. et vais bientôt partir à la recherche de THE ROBE … MY ROBE …. pour le maquillage, la coiffure et tout le reste pour être « sublime » j’attends avec impatience des conseils, astuces et secrets !!Bises

    • hi alex,I am having a problem with wordpress URLs…. In category page urls “category” keyword is coming…. There are some plugins to remove that keyword but after using those plugins my child category pages are redirecting to 404 error page….. If u know any remedy for this please let me know….

    • Je suis prof, et ce que je lis me fait plaisir. Qu’en déduire ? J’ajouterais peut-être "Chercher à avoir un bon point ou une bonne note", ce qui transcrit dans le domaine du Web signifie vouloir mettre des stickers W3C -HTML, CSS, WCAG-AAA valides, etc. À la différence près que dans le domaine du Web, on s’autodécerne ces colifichets, parfois sans savoir ce qu’ils signifient.

    • I can soooooooooo understand your little ones pain. When I was in jr. high I had 10 baby teeth pulled so I could get braces it hurt SO bad when they
