Welcome to Philadelphia Contemporary

The Velocity Fund

The regional regranting program funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is now hosted by Philadelphia Contemporary. The ​Velocity ​Fund is open to a wide range of experimental practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration between artistic genres leading to expanded audiences, fresh outcomes and an enriched multi-disciplinary discourse. Grants up to $5000 will be awarded to Philadelphia-based artists.
