Grants and Resources for Arts Organizations and Artists

The Arts Partnership provides capacity-building opportunities to both area organizations and individual artists. Below are a few ways we do just that. Please note: specific dates for upcoming deadlines may not have been set.



(Deadlines: Organizations – Early Spring, Individual Artists – Early Fall)

Through its grant programs, TAP invests in the overall health and success of the Metro’s arts community. City Arts Partnership Grants provide general operating or project support to area non-profits while Individual Arts Partnership grants support artists and artisans working in a wide spectrum of the arts.



This program puts artists and their work in the forefront of the Metro’s corporations. Visual artists exhibit their work in corporate offices, engage with the employees and walk away with some excellent marketing materials to boot! Learn more…
