Added Velocity builds on the momentum of The Velocity Fund by directly supporting successful grantees who demonstrate a commitment to expanding their initial projects in meaningful and far-reaching ways. Five Added Velocity projects will be awarded $15,000 to build on the successes of their initial projects by expanding audiences through multiple public outcomes across Philadelphia.

Added Velocity is administered by Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture with generous support from the William Penn Foundation.
