Who is this for
This newsletter is for artists and their fans, friends, and supporters. And when we say “artists” we mean writers, painters, dancers, choreographers, sculptors, filmmakers, illustrators, woodworkers, architects, designers, typographers, photographers, animators, directors, producers, actors, musicians, composers, fashion designers, chefs, game developers, creative coders, journalists, hackers, podcasters, storytellers, XR creators, playwrights, comedians, novelists, and anyone else who reveals emotional truths about the human experience.
Artizen makes it easy for anyone to create artist grants that are funded and curated by your community. Thanks to our unique crowdfunding model, we give you the freedom to craft and control your grant while empowering your community to fund and curate the awards. By pooling resources with other creators, patrons, and industry leaders you amplify your impact and provide more sustainable support for the artists you love.
