Is it hard writing project grants? Is it tedious to write pages about your work?
Then apply for a CUE #TwtGrnt!
1) Propose an art project in 140 characters or less (artists of all ages working in any discipline and medium are eligible)
2) Upload or link to ONE sample of your past work as support material
3) Use #TwtGrnt hashtag
4) Get it all into one message (no multiple tweets)
Winning application receives a $140 #TwtGrnt to put towards an art project. That’s a dollar per character, folks. Nothing wrong with that, eh? Only J.K. Rowling makes more.
Deadline for submissions is Friday, June 21st at 5 p.m.
Winner announced next week.
Now, go see how much depth you can squeeze into 140 characters.
- Refrain from expensive, multi-syllabic art school vernacular
- Don’t use filler like “um… well, you see... it’s, ah, it’s just kind of like…”
- Save the emoticons for Mother’s Day. This is a grant we’re talking about here. It’s serious stuff.
Your friends forever at CUE
We are proud to announce that CUE is one of three finalists for an Arts for Youth award from the Toronto Arts Foundation. Big congratulations to the all of the other finalists, including Art Starts and Expect Theatre in the Arts for Youth category. We're excited to celebrate alongside the finalists at the Mayor's Arts Lunch on June 27th.
Simply making it to the finalist stage is a wild honour for our small group, and it's fantastic to see that others recognize the importance of creating accessible support structures for artists. We share this recognition with all past and present CUE artists, funders, partners, collaborators, co-conspirators, staff, volunteers, and to all who have witnessed the collective visionary work coming from far outside the mainstream.
With love and thanks.
Meet Kiana Browne, another incredible artist whom we are privileged to support.
Kiana is one of the youngest artists CUE has supported--at 16 years old she is sailing waves beyond her years. Check out this new video about Kiana and her work, and come see it live in July at CUE's group exhibition. Stayed tuned in. Always. (for details)
Sweet people of the world (or at least our friends):

Stay tuned for a big ol' group show this summer.
