Velocity Fund: Information Session

Featuring 2021 Grantee Rami George
Sunday, May 1, 2022 | 1-2pm | at Vox

Join us at Vox Populi at 1pm on Sunday, May 1, 2022, to learn about The Velocity Fund. Find out about upcoming grants and answer any questions about the application process in this Joint Information Session.

This session will feature 2021 Grantee Rami George, talking about their Velocity Fund project, Virtues Vol. 1—Remixed and Reinterpreted – a remix of a ten track EP, “Virtues Vol. 1”, created in collaboration with Joel Midden. The original EP consists of a series of sonic interpretations of esoteric line drawings produced by the Samaritan Foundation—a New Age religious cult George’s mother was involved with in the early 1990s. For the remix project, they will invite 10 experimental musicians to remix/re-interpret the tracks of this EP.

The Velocity Fund directly supports artists to organize ​new ​collaborative projects throughout the city of Philadelphia by awarding grants up to $5000. Philadelphia’s visual artists are a diverse community of makers and thinkers from multiple social, economic and cultural backgrounds. The ​Velocity ​Fund is open to a wide range of experimental practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration between artistic genres leading to expanded audiences, fresh outcomes and an enriched multi-disciplinary discourse.

The Velocity Fund is administered by Philadelphia Contemporary and is supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’s Regional Regranting Program.

Application Deadline: June 6, 2022
