Right Now! Production Grants are opportunities for artists to produce a publication that is reflective of current events and can be generated and disseminated quickly. WSW seeks projects of broad scope, from zines and chapbooks to button sets, poster prints, and other imaginative ephemera. Means of production may include silkscreen, letterpress, photocopy, risograph, other types of digital printing, and more.
Each artist will receive $250 per week for each week of production, and all printing and binding expenses will be covered by WSW. The production schedule, length, and contract terms will be agreed upon between WSW and the artist. Individual project details will dictate the contract terms. For instance, one artist’s project may require four weeks of production from digital pre-prep to binding, while another may only require two. Upon receipt of the award, artists will immediately set project goals, budget, and calendar with WSW’s Artistic Director.
Artists will work remotely with WSW staff. All physical production including ordering of supplies, printing, binding, etc. will be completed by the WSW studio staff with the artist’s creative direction. Production meetings will be scheduled via video conference.
