The Free Art and Technology Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media. The entire FAT network of artists, engineers, scientists, lawyers, musicians and Bornas are committed to supporting open values and the public domain through the use of emerging open licenses, support for open entrepreneurship and the admonishment of secrecy, copyright monopolies and patents.
This is the final proposal that I’m sending out to people I’m interested in interviewing or getting involved with my project to explain what I’m doing. I’m blogging about it over on why-we-make.com with vague plans to make a book in June.
Holstee is giving away $1k each month to encourage people to follow their dreams.
Who can apply?
Anyone is welcome to apply. We would love to support people who have been dreaming about an inspiring idea and just need a positive push to get started.
And what projects does the fellowship want to support?
The Holstee Fellowship exists to support ideas and projects that reflect the values of our Manifesto. While everyone is eligible, we hope to support projects that aim for positive impact, either for you personally, in your community, or for society as a whole.
The ideal Holstee Fellowship project:
Is a Holstee spirited “risk” – something you have dreamed of but not done.
Is something that excites you as much as it scares you.
Yields positive results in your community.
Will inspire others to live their dream.
Aligns with the values formulated in our Manifesto.
It appears as thought the Providence chapter is currently on hiatus, but they have a Boston one as well that looks pretty active:
With the exception of July and December, we deliberate at the end of each month to award two $1,000 grants. Fellowship recipients are posted to the gallery at the top of the page so check back to see who is getting the ca$h.
