SPACE Gallery created The Kindling Fund to support the energy of Maine’s visual arts community by funding innovative, artist-organized projects that engage the public in ways that are both inventive and meaningful. The Kindling Fund values risk and experimentation, unconventional engagement, and critical dialogue, and encourages collaborative efforts to reach new audiences, increase public interaction, facilitate dialogue between artists, and create new models for presenting artists’ work. The Fund seeks to support a variety of publicly accessible projects, with a strong interest in alternative space/practices and site-specific presentations that don’t fit in established institutions or venues. Projects supported by The Kindling Fund may include (but are not limited to): curatorial projects that focus on unconventional artistic practice; public art projects, intervention or site specific installations; the publication of writing directly related to the visual arts including printed matter and online publications; artist residencies; unconventional exhibitions.
