Cycle for 2014 Grant Application with The Aftermath Project available
The Aftermath Project is looking forward to seeing what you’ve got! Thanks to the generous support of the Foundation to Promote Open Society, the organization will be offering one $20,000 grant in 2014, and naming four finalists.
The deadline for applications to be submitted is November 11, 2013. For the first time – at last! – the submission process will be online. The grant winner will be announced in mid-December.
The Aftermath Project is a very small organization committed to a very specific issue – post-conflict storytelling and education around those issues. There’s a purpose to their grant; fostering broad conversations through the work they support. That’s part of why the organization publish an annual book, featuring the work of the grant winner and finalists. It’s expensive. From the founder: “We don’t have tons of money – I started The Aftermath Project without a penny. And while we have built some wonderful partnerships and strong support, we still operate – and accomplish a lot – on a very modest budget. So – that’s why we ask each year’s grant winner and finalist to donate two prints to us, to use in raising the funds to pay for the book, which we also distribute pro bono to an important list of policy makers, educators and curators.”
