WaveMaker Grants, the re-granting initiative administered by Miami based non-profit Cannonball, announced its 2016 grantees this week. Fourteen WaveMaker Grants winners were selected from over 100 applicants. Each WaveMaker grantee was awarded up to $10,000 and $100,000 was awarded in total. Grants were made in three categories: New Work/Projects Grants support the creation and presentation of new work or projects that are artist-driven, artist-centric, and innovative in concept and form; Long-Haul Projects Grants support the continuation or completion of existing long-term projects; and R&D/Implementation Grants support research and development for ambitious new projects that require a longer planning period.Read More

Cannonball is thrilled to announce WaveMaker Grants, a new granting initiative that is sure to make waves in Miami’s visual arts community. Developed with the support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, WaveMaker Grants expands the Foundation’s Regional Regranting Program to the Southeast, creating a new funding stream to the growing number of innovative, artist-driven projects in Miami-Dade County. Through this program, Cannonball aims to recognize and validate unconventional, experimental artist-centric activities that tend to skew away from traditional funding sources and resist current demands of the marketplace.
