How can an artist get funded when they are not producing a commercial product? And what if they are a student or or are doing small scale projects? What can the arts world learn from microgranters? Have we underestimated the power of putting a small amount of money in highly-creative hands?


Today we are joined by Marissa Neave, an emerging writer and curator studying Criticism and Curatorial Practice at the Ontario College of Art and Design whose thesis project tinygrants is an experiment in microfunding for the arts — specifically artist performing creative interventions in Toronto, Ontario. As always, we welcome call-in questions at (347) 855-8744.
