The Velocity Fund Information Session

May 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join us on-line –Friday, May7th at 4PM– to learn more about The Velocity Fund.

Our community partners for this event–Taller Puertorriqueño and Vox Populi– will kick off the short presentation, serving as our host as we convene remotely via Zoom. 

Raúl Romero–2019 Velocity Fund grantee and 2020 Velocity Fund panelist– will introduce his project Onomonopoetics of a Puerto Rican Landscape and some of its Philadelphia public outcomes–at both Taller Puertorriqueño in 2020 and Vox Populi in April 2021.

We will then briefly introduce The Velocity Fund’s upcoming grants for Philadelphia artists, discussing eligibility and answering any questions about the application process.

After registration, we will send the direct link to the talk. Please note: by participating in this event, Zoom will log your attendance information, and although we are not recording the conversation, it will be accessible by the administrator.

Application Deadline: June 14, 2021
