The Velocity Fund directly supports artists to organize ​new ​collaborative projects throughout the city of Philadelphia by awarding grants up to $5000. Philadelphia’s visual artists are a diverse community of makers and thinkers from multiple social, economic and cultural backgrounds. The ​Velocity ​Fund is open to a wide range of experimental practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration between artistic genres leading to expanded audiences, fresh outcomes and an enriched multi-disciplinary discourse.

The Velocity Fund is administered by Philadelphia Contemporary and is supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts's Regional Regranting Program.

Application Deadline: June 14, 2021

Founded in 1965, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education is one of the first urban environmental education centers in a major metropolitan area. Working through four core program areas: environmental education, land stewardship, wildlife rehabilitation and art, we aim to create a world where all people play, learn, and grow with nature as part of their everyday lives. Our Environmental Art Program provides opportunities to investigate, innovate and interpret the nature of place. Through art installations in our gallery and on our trails, we incite curiosity and spark awareness of the natural environment. We aim to build spaces for artists and the public to creatively explore and engage with environmental issues of our time and our surrounding ecosystem. Learn more about the Schuylkill Center's ongoing Art Program, its mission and history on their website.

This summer environmental artist Sarah Kavage and Iraqi designer Yaroub Al-Obaidi will install "Al-Mudhif - A Confluence," a Iraqi guesthouse and multimedia exhibition at the Schuylkill Center. The project is part of the larger art initiative Lenapehoking~Watershed with artists Sarah Kavage and Adrienne Mackey by The Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE).
