The Terra Foundation is seeking applications for its Art Design Chicago 2024 Convening Grants Program.

Donor Name: Terra Foundation

State: Illinois

City: Chicago

Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 12/07/2021

Grant Size: $5,000 to $25,000



Funded projects are expected to:

  • Address diverse makers and creative practices and communities that have not previously, or recently, been the subject of close study;
  • Open up new contexts for thinking about Chicago’s art and design histories (and by extension US art and design histories) by bringing a diversity of voices and perspectives to the topic, and through interdisciplinary or comparative approaches, for example; and
  • Bring attention to collections that are significant to Chicago’s art and design history, making these resources better understood.
  • Convening organizers are encouraged to:
    • Include individuals who bring knowledge from beyond the art and design history fields, and from places beyond Chicago and the United States; and
    • Document and disseminate convening proceedings by publishing or posting papers online and/or by posting video recordings if appropriate.

Funding Information

Convening Grants range from $5,000 to $25,000.

Eligibility Criteria

The Terra Foundation only accepts proposals from institutions with United States 501(c)(3) status, and does not make grants to individuals. The Terra Foundation does not accept proposals for:

  • Projects that focus on architecture, the built environment, or urban plan. Instead, the initiative focuses on aspects of Chicago’s art and design history that have received less scholarly attention.
  • Capital expenditures.
