Power2Give Campaign Now Running

RunJumpDev is now working with LexArts to help fund raise for our artists for the 2016 Rules and Play. The ongoing campaign, using the charity website Power2Give, is intended to help fund the campaign over the course of the next month. This fundraiser will help us give money to all of our artists to help cover the costs of exhibiting in our upcoming show in Lexington, KY.

This fundraiser is currently live on Power2Give, and for the first $500 we have matching donations through Baptist Health. That means for every $1 spent, we get another dollar in matching funds. This is extremely helpful for bringing interactive art to the Bluegrass and we are incredibly excited for this opportunity. This donation form is live through the end of the month of June.

Artists seeking further information in regards to workshop times and deadlines may sign up for our mailing list.

Support funding may be available between $50-200 per artist for transportation and materials, but funds are limited. Please indicate in your application if you are seeking support funding and the amount you are requesting. Acceptance into the exhibition does not guarantee that you will receive funding or the full amount requested. Support funding amounts will be determined by RunJumpDev and are based on total numbers of requests and amounts available. Funds are provided through a grant received from LexArts.
