Submitted by Jaime Sharp on April 12, 2022
The new grant from Basic Income for the Arts, “will give 2,000 artists €325 (~$354) a week with no restrictions on spending.” This pilot program will be tested over the course of three years (2022-2025).
“The program is not restricted to the visual arts: Literature, theater, music, dance, circus, and architecture are among the many eligible mediums,” said Elaine Velie. “The application is also noncompetitive — artists only have to meet the eligibility requirements in order to be entered into the pool.”
