Call for Proposals 2023 Award

Now in its fifth year, the Todd Samara Art Fund Award is now accepting proposals from artists in all genres of art practice, including but not limited to visual arts, music, performance, new media and literary arts. This year’s $1,500 award is designed for proposals from emerging and established artists, art educators, and/or curators for a City of Kingston-based project.  Applicants must reside or work in the city of Kingston.

How To Apply:

Applicants must send a short description of their project or describe a need related to their art practice they deem worthy of funding, along with a one-page CV and up to eight images or links to videos. In judging creative work of merit, factors that will be considered by the committee include originality of conception, quality of execution and/or craft, professionalism of presentation, and visibility and/or engagement with the community, particularly as it pertains to under-served communities and the education of under-resourced youth.

Proposals should be submitted to by October 15, 2023. The award will be announced on November 5th at Kingston Midtown Arts District’s annual fundraising event, the MAD Soiree.
