About Artizen

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.

Based in Wellington, New Zealand, Artizen is an open source platform run by the members of our global community. Our mission is to radically expand support for artists who impact culture.
