Still Making Art aims to be an independent non-profit foundation supporting young and progressive artists.
Still Making Art aims to distribute grants on an annual (and eventually quarterly) basis. These grants have a simple application process and a selection procedure that employs creative and unconventional protocols.
Still Making Art aims to support artists within the watershed of becoming professional. It is in this period that many artists struggle—either due to lack of knowledge of the best methods to apply for support, or due to their work pushing progressive ideas that are unbeknownst to the usual funding body.
Still Making Art aims to liberate the application process. The activities of the foundation, and its extensive cohort of artists, will be publicised in a variety of formats including exhibitions, events, printed matter and digital media.
Still Making Art aims to operate as a cloud based institution. It will not require overhead costs such as an office, facilities, or staff, to conduct its activities. The platform will act under the designation of a foundation no matter how much money it raises and consequently distributes.
Still Making Art is initiated by Aaron McLaughlin, an artist and curator based in Amsterdam.
