Gener8tor Announces Program this Summer for Milwaukee Artists

Gener8tor has designed a program to support the local arts community.

It’s easy with the COVID-19 crisis to put your life on hold, as it can feel like everything in the world is at a stand still.

Being a visual artist at a time like this can be especially tough, because jobs are scarce and opportunities to present new work are limited. But they’re not entirely nonexistent.

The tech incubator Gener8tor recently announced that they’ll be rolling out mentorship and budget grant programs for the summer through, an arts accelerator.

They’re selecting four artists to participate in the free, 12-week program. Chosen artists will receive a $15,000 grant, as well as individualized mentorship and coaching on how to maintain a sustainable art practice and succeed in the art industry. 

The director of, Maureen Ragalie, also serves as the current curator at Saint Kate Arts Hotel.

“By providing funding and mentoring to artists,” Ragalie says, “we can help support and grow Milwaukee’s vibrant arts community.”

The application deadline is May 15. will be holding virtual information sessions and office hours for interested artists online leading up to the deadline.
