Interchange is a new program supporting artists working for social change.

Interchange is a new pilot program created to strengthen communities and individual artists within the M-AAA region by supporting artist-led projects focused on social impact. Interchange is supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Interchange will provide grant funding, training, and peer connection to sixteen artists with active socially engaged creative practices residing in M-AAA’s six-state region (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas) The twenty-four-month pilot will support artists working in communities of varying sizes and characteristics throughout the region with project grants of $20,000; professional development retreats with all Interchange grantees; and ongoing mentoring through the life of the funded projects. Interchange builds upon M-AAA’s expertise, through the Artist INC and Artists360 programs, of serving individual artists with both professional development and grantmaking.
