Overview

Lannan Foundation is a family foundation dedicated to cultural freedom diversity and creativity through projects which support exceptional contemporary artists and writers as well as inspired Native activists in rural indigenous communities. The Foundation recognizes the profound and often unquantifiable value of the creative process and is willing to take risks and make substantial investments in ambitious and experimental thinking. Understanding that globalization threatens all cultures and ecosystems the Foundation is particularly interested in projects that encourage freedom of inquiry imagination and expression. The Foundation supports this mission by making grants to nonprofit organizations in the areas of contemporary visual art literature indigenous communities and cultural freedom. The Foundation also gives awards and fellowships to writers of poetry fiction and nonfiction and in the area of cultural freedom. Awards recognize individuals for extraordinary work in their fields. Fellowships provide time and support to continue with or to complete specific projects and also recognize those who show potential for future outstanding work.
