Since 2014, the Rhizome Microgrant Program has awarded small grants ($500 – $1500) for the creation of new artworks, online exhibitions, and other web-based projects. The goal of this program is to empower anyone who has an idea for a creative project that responds to network culture and digital technologies to make it. The application is short, and proposed projects should be scoped according to the support provided by a “micro” grant. Select projects may receive additional support and/or have the opportunity to be included in the Rhizome ArtBase.

This year, we invite submissions in the following categories: articles about works in the Rhizome ArtBase and browser-based projects. The submissions will be juried by Rhizome staff.

If you aren’t sure if your project qualifies, please apply. We are considering these categories expansively and we would rather hear from you than not! We encourage proposals from people who are historically underrepresented in art and technology spaces. We welcome applications from people based in all locations; at least four microgrants will be awarded to New York City-based applicants. Feel free to email with any questions.

The deadline to apply is 11:59pm ET, April 10, 2023. Responses will be sent out in mid May.
