Funding / Awards
The Artraker Fund celebrates and awards artwork which makes a direct positive change in countries that have experienced social upheaval and violent conflict. The Fund was created in 2012 by International Conflict and Security (INCAS) Consulting Ltd.
An international panel of judges from both the art and peace-building disciplines assesses submissions for the Artraker Award. They look for experimentation and engagement, audacity, change and capacity to inspire. The final prize of GBP 2,500 is awarded to the winning submission in London each year on 21 September (International Peace Day). A further ten short listed projects / artists will be invited to join the Artrakers network. These projects / artists are promoted to peace-builders, curators and other art world professionals. They are featured on the Artrakers section of the Fund’s website and in other Fund outreach publications.
The Fund welcomes submissions from artists of all nationalities and at any stage of their careers.
