wrkxfmly Grants

Students, teachers, and organizations participating in the wrkxfmly Assignment are invited to apply for grants from Working Assumptions. wrkxfmly grants support students in sharing work made for the assignment through exhibitions, publications, or events.

Examples of possible exposure opportunities include:

  • A series of printed posters to hang around your school or community

  • A reception with photo students and their families

  • An artist talk at your school by one of the Showing photographers or curators

  • An exhibition in a gallery or other space at your school

  • An exhibition at another venue in your community

  • A zine or other printed piece

  • An exhibition in conjunction with another school doing the Assignment

  • An online project

Projects should showcase the work of the entire class, not just certain individuals. Any work to be published in print or online must have a signed use agreement from the author. Be creative and come up with ideas that are realistic to accomplish and will be a good fit for your school.

Who can apply?

Teachers or students who are doing the wrkxfmly Assignment, or administrators from participating schools and programs. Students applying for the grant need to have a faculty advisor who will co-sign the application as a responsible party from the school.
