Generosity Foundation: Free Money For Artists
The Generosity Foundation, (or The Federation of Students and Nominally or Unemployed Artists) is part performance art and part micro-lending grant program. The group of 10, each gathered $100 then pooled the money to be given away as grants to jump start art projects. This past June, they set up a booth in a New York park and gave away cash and official looking grant certificates to random aspiring artists that passed by. The Foundation will be doing more free-form giving this week in New York, as part of the Conflux Festival.
