Convening Projects bring together teams of curators, exhibition planners and educators from all tour venues of an Art Bridges Exhibition Project, to plan an innovative approach to showing and programming a tour. The convening is co-led by the organizer and Art Bridges.
Who can apply?

- Rural or regional venues with acceptable facility reports
- Annual operating budgets under $5 million
- Eager to engage their community in a topic relevant to them and supported by exhibition content
- Committed to innovation, experimentation, and multidisciplinary approaches
All venues participating in a convening are expected to apply separately for a programming & evaluation project.
Up to $20,000 for direct costs associated with materials for the convening (supplies) and travel expenses associated with the convening, typically for 2 people per venue.
