The Rauschenberg Foundation’s SEED program is a combination of risk capital and value added support to early stage, groundbreaking projects in ten (non-NYC and L.A.) cities across the United States. This year, it has expanded to include Appalachia (Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia), Houston, and Santa Fe.

Among the twelve grant recipients across the country are two Houston organizations: Alabama Song and Antena. The Foundations states:

Past grants have focused on innovation in arts and culture. Identified by local cultural leaders, the foundation provided grants to small- to mid-size arts organizations at their earliest operational stages, even before those organizations may have had structures in place to execute other fundraising activities. The grants allowed leadership to shore up their capacity so that they could focus instead on expanding and enriching their local cultural landscape.

Alabama Song is a small experimental art space whose programming features performances, readings, and workshops as well as screenings, exhibitions and installations. Antena is a language justice and language experimentation collaborative, focusing on writing, art- and book-making, translating, interpreting, and language justice.

Congratulations to both!
