  4. I’m not ready to apply yet. Will you have another project cycle soon?

  5. When you say “first open call”, what do you mean?
    While Art Bridges has been working with and supporting an ever expanding group of partners, this is our first ever public request for submissions for project funding. First. Ever. It will be a learning experience for us all, and we’re looking forward to working with institutions interested in operating in a new and dynamic way.
