Runway Renegades Grant Application for Individual Artists
Runway Renegades was created in 2007. We are committed to the professional and educational advancement in the areas of arts, culture, fashion and design. The purpose of the Runway Renegades Foundation is to provide financial assistance and mentorships to local artists. We strive to create a village of like-minded individuals for the benefit of its participants and the community which it serves. Research shows that at-risk students who have access to the arts in or out of school also tend to have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement. (NEA report, 2012).
The grant for which you are applying is from the proceeds from the annual Runway Renegades Fashion Show, fundraisers and sponsorships. These grants ($200, $500 or $1,000) are available to any artist in the Pacific Northwest, fashion related or otherwise, for special projects, exhibits or to further education. In exchange, recipients will agree to volunteer (2, 5 or 10) hours working with local at-risk students.
Note: We do not accept applications that request funding for participation in our annual Runway Renegades show.
