We are so incredibly excited to officially announce the first grant from the Vox Pop Foundation. Since the very beginning Vox Pop has been about providing a space for people to create, have fun, and more than anything it’s been about finding ways to give back. It’s been a huge learning experience, and it’s come with its fair share of hurdles. Call us overly ambitious but the second we started seeing ourselves stabilize we asked ourselves what else can we do? That’s when the foundation came to be. Our goal is to provide support to artists in the form of micro grants. With that being said, our first grant will be in the amount of $500. The application opens on February 6th, 2019 and the winner will be announced at an event at Vox Pop on May 3rd, 2019.

The requirements are as follows:
-          Must be 18 years of age at the time of application
-          Must live in Stockton, CA
-          Must be an artist of some caliber (visual, musical, conceptual, etc)
-          Must submit a portfolio of your work
-          Personal statement
o   Please include the following:
-  A little bit of background
-  What kind of art you create
-  What projects you are working on now
