Storefront for Art & Architecture: Call for Ideas / Independent Projects


Independent Projects

Do you have an idea for a project that produces alternatives? 
This year, Storefront will once again sponsor twenty independent
architecture and design projects through NYSCA.
The Architecture + Design Program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) awards project grants for individuals or teams through its Independent Projects category. These grants, of up to $10,000, are awarded to architects, landscape architects, graphic designers, fashion designers, industrial designers, and interior designers to “creatively explore or research an issue or problem in the design, planning, and/or historic preservation fields that advances the field and contributes to the public’s understanding of the built environment.”
NYSCA seeks projects that are innovative in nature and emphasize the artistry of design excellence. Projects may lead to the creation of design prototypes, explore new technology that impacts design, research a topic in design or architectural history, or engage in critical or theoretical analyses.
Storefront will sponsor up to 20 projects for the 2019 calendar year. Priority will be given to applications that align with Storefront’s organizational mission to advance innovative and critical positions that go beyond disciplinary and ideological boundaries.
Initial proposals: March 9th
Final applications: March 19th
