The Idea Fund is a re-granting program administered by DiverseWorks in partnership with Aurora Picture Show and Project Row Houses and funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The Idea Fund provides grants for artist-generated or artist-centered projects that exemplify unconventional, interventionist, conceptual, entrepreneurial, participatory, or guerrilla artistic practices.

The Idea Fund is one of 32 Warhol Foundation Regional Re-granting Programs developed and facilitated by arts organizations in Alabama, Albuquerque, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Greensboro, NC, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Knoxville, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Newark, Oklahoma, Omaha, Philadelphia, Portland, ME, Portland, OR, Providence, Raleigh, Saint Louis, San Francisco, San Juan, PR, Seattle, and Washington D.C.

The Regional Regranting Program, launched in 2007, aims to support vibrant, under-the-radar and self-organized artistic activity by partnering with leading cultural institutions in communities across the country. The program reaches a sizable population of informal, non-incorporated artist collectives, and supports their alternative gathering spaces, publications, websites, events, and other projects. Together, this network of programs has funded more than 800 artist’s projects.
