1 month ago

Are you an artist, media maker, or creative? Do you have a new, original, and risk-taking arts and cultural project and need funding to get it started? Then the Appal Seed Fund may be a great fit for you - applications open from now until May 13th.


The Appal Seed Fund supports new, original, and risk-taking arts and cultural projects that are in the early stages of development and that advance the mission of Appalshop to: 

  • Document, disseminate, and revitalize the lasting traditions and contemporary creativity of Appalachia; 
  • Tell stories the commercial cultural industries don’t tell, challenging stereotypes with Appalachian voices and visions; 
  • Support communities’ efforts to achieve justice and equity and solve their own problems in their own ways; 
  • Celebrate cultural diversity as a positive social value; and 
  • Participate in regional, national, and global dialogue toward these ends.
