I have a hard time understanding things....and one thing I don't get is when it comes to art funding. When I go look online for art grants etc I often see things like this:
To become a USA Fellow, one must be nominated. Each year nominations are made by an anonymous group of arts leaders, critics, scholars, and artists chosen by USA. Nominators do not know one another; their identities remain confidential. (I found that here).
Can someone explain to me if I ever have a chance of getting nominated when I know NO ONE? Does anyone have thoughts or advice on grants for living space etc? If you are a full time artist who needs help what do you do? Am I even close to being in a world where I would be considered for grants and help?
