Small But Mighty Arts Grant

Small But Mighty Arts is set to pilot its micro-grant program by awarding a group of Philadelphia artists with funding to continue and complete a creative project and put their work out into the community.

Micro-grants are increasingly important to artists. Many artists have been $200 – $1,000 away from the next significant step in their creative careers. Awarding them with much needed funding and doing so sooner can also help to maintain the momentum of their creative work.

Music and Money Quizzes

How much do you know about money and music, and the copyright laws, licenses and agreements that frequently determine who gets paid, and how much? Take one – or all – of these quizzes and see how you measure up!

Each quiz has 10 questions that get progressively more difficult. For each question you get right, you get a point. If, perchance, you get some questions wrong, we will provide you with information about the correct answer. You’ll see your score at the end, and you’ll be able to download a report or share the results with your friends.

Ahead of his time: South Philly’s Lorenzo Buffa and his flexible, wood watches

Lorenzo Buffa set his goals pretty modestly. When he started his Kickstarter campaign, he figured $10,000 should cover initial production costs for his all-natural wood watches.

With three days left to go for bids, he’s already raised more than $61,000. The project is the highest rated on Kickstarter for the region.

“It’s fantastic. I’m totally elated,” Buffa said.
