SPACES provides a number of artist opportunities throughout the year. Check out our website to learn more about current and upcoming calls for artists:


The Satellite Fund is open to artists, curators, and other kinds of cultural producers living/working in Cuyahoga County who apply with projects that are based in the visual arts. We accept applications from creative professionals at all stages of their careers who engage in experimental practices with strong conceptual foundations. The projects for which The Satellite Fund is distributed must be created and displayed in Cuyahoga County.

Artists who have confirmed exhibitions scheduled at SPACES n the future, have been awarded The Satellite Fund in 2022, have been awarded The Urgent Art Fund 2023, SPACES staff (and relatives), SPACES board members (and relatives), and SPACES contractors (and relatives) may not apply to The Satellite Fund.

Artists may submit only 1 application with them as the project lead, but may be included in multiple applications, as long as they are the lead on only 1 application.


Artists are required to submit the following materials:

·       Project title
·       Artist(s) Biography
·       Project description
·       Venue/Public display
·       Timeline (template provided at HERE)
·       Budget (template provided HERE)
·       Work samples + descriptions


Applications for The Satellite Fund will be open from May 5, 2023 through July 3, 2023 (11:59 pm PM EST). SPACES will retain a 5-person application review panel, consisting of 3 arts professionals living and/or working in Cuyahoga County (and who will be ineligible to apply while serving on the panel), and 2 arts professionals who lives and works outside of Cuyahoga County. Panelists will score the applications based on the following criteria: feasibility, relevancy, artistic quality, ability to create an exchange of ideas and perspectives in alignment with the purpose of The Satellite Fund.
