Announcing our 2021-22 MATCH Lab artists and collectives

Applications for the 2021-22 MATCH Lab program are now closed. Successful applicants will be notified in early October.

MATCH Lab is a professional development opportunity that supports independent artists and collectives to build arts business skills and increase knowledge of philanthropy and arts partnerships within the framework of a fundraising campaign.

How MATCH Lab works: Successful applicants will take part in Raising Money for Your Art, a two-day professional development and fundraising clinic, with the opportunity to connect with experts and peers to develop a fundraising strategy for supporting their arts practice. They will then run a fundraising campaign, with funds raised towards the target matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000.
