Populus Fund grant recipients receive funding for projects that promote collaboration with the public and are radically accessible. Funds can be used for the research, development, and creation of public-facing new work, a project, or performance. The 2022 grantees include artists of a wide diversity of backgrounds and disciplines, each with a unique approach to engaging their communities.
