Dear Arizona artists,

We invite you to review the following calls for artists.

Thank you for your engagement and contribution.

- Artlink


About us: 

Artlink Inc. was founded by artists in 1989 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and keeps the arts integral to the development of our city. We work to connect artists of all disciplines, arts venues, arts supporting businesses and advocates in an effort to strengthen and promote the community's unique culture.

We support a variety  of community-based art events and initiatives, including the First Friday and Third Friday Art Walks, The Artist Forward Fund, Phoenix Urban Guide, IN FLUX, and the annual Art Detour and Art d’Core Gala. 

Artlink is supported by City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, Downtown Phoenix Inc., Arizona Commission on the Arts, and several corporate and community partners. Visit artlinkphx.org to  sign up for the Artlink newsletter or connect socially on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

NOTE: Artists wishing to submit for a TAFF grant must be registered as an Artlink Articipant. 

If you registered as an All Access or Artist Studio Articipant, please proceed with the submission of this form, as your TAFF submission fee is waived.  

If you are not currently registered as an Artlink Articipant, please visit Artlinkphx.org to complete the registration process before submitting for a grant.

Artlink Inc. is now accepting applications from Arizona-based artists for the second run of its grant program: The Artist Forward Fund (TAFF). The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Monday, November 11, 2019, Mountain Standard Time (MST).

The program, originally announced in 2017, is produced by Artlink in collaboration with a group of prominent professional artists who are serving on the Artlink Artist Council (AAC).

Submitted grant applications will be reviewed by the AAC along with members of Artlink’s Board of Directors.

The selected grant recipient will receive a $1,000 grant for completion of work and creating a winter exhibition, opening February 6 in the first floor of The Stewart, 800 N. Central Ave. Additionally, members of the AAC will provide mentorship to selected artist(s).

The artist recipient will be someone who demonstrates potential in their practice through risk-taking and pushing their work in dynamic ways. It will be someone who is at a critical juncture in their career when this support would be most impactful.
