Space118 Fine Arts Grant
Space118 invites artists from all over India to apply for a production grant in the range of INR 15,000 to 1,00,000 towards the realisation of an ongoing or new project. The grant includes two online mentorship sessions with a senior artist, an online review session with the jury, and an opportunity to show their works through a ‘Virtual Open Studio Day via Instagram Live and Facebook Live.’
Space118 Fundraiser Shows
The Space118 Fundraiser show was started in an attempt to provide new generation artists a platform to showcase their works and help maximize their reach in the art world. This show takes place once in every year, where we present the works of upcoming 20 artists, belonging to different regions of the country. The artists receive 50% of the earnings from this show, while the remaining 50% goes towards the Space118 Fine Arts Grant.
Guidance and Mentoring
Artists are fueled by their surroundings, inspired by the people they meet and the experiences they have. Sometimes, a mere conversation can be the seed for a masterpiece or a series of work. We, at Space118 recognize this and actively facilitate conversations with mentors for our Grant artists in the form of Icebreaker and Mentorship sessions.
Our Facebook and Instagram profiles, as well as our newsletters, provide updates on our grantees, upcoming artists, their practices, and other ongoing events. Additionally, we have each grant artist take over our social media platforms for a week to give our audiences an insight into their creative process. Through these platforms, we are able to create awareness about our initiatives and engage with a global audience.
