S.O.S. Guilds is a New York based art and sustainability entity that creates social changes by applying the power of artistic imagination to inform, inspire, engage, animate and motivate various communities around the world. We give grants to artists to execute art projects that highlight the issue of sustainability. Artists that are funded by S.O.S. Guilds are encouraged to pay it forward by funding others or give back to the S.O.S. Guilds pool of resources.
We offer a small grant of USD500 (approx RM1500), in two parts payment to guarantee the success and execution of the proposed project. As the founder of S.O.S. Guilds, I’m here to provide support, marketing, and conceptual thinking to help plan and troubleshoot any stages of the project. Projects must be completed within 3 months duration and be documented from start to finish on a blog to be shared with the wider online audience. Anyone can apply except residents of New York City due to a conflict of interest. Grantees must credit S.O.S. Guilds on all promotional materials.
