The Arts Partnership Now Taking Artist Submissions for Individual Artist Grants, CSA and ArtWORKS
Grants for Individual Artists:
There are two parts to the Individual Artist Grant program: The Individual Arts Partnership grants (for all but musicians) and the Jade Presents Arts Partnership grants (for musicians). Anyone interested in applying for either of these grants MUST attend a pre-application meeting (see the schedule below).
The deadline to apply for a grant is 5 p.m. Monday, September 10. Click here for more information.
Community Supported Art (CSA):
We are also looking for artists to create art for next our Community Supported Art season. This program introduces artists to arts supporters and helps build audiences for their work. Throughout the CSA season, up to 50 shareholders receive a total of six pieces of art and performances over three events in May, July and September. There is a baseline artist stipend of $1,050.
The deadline to apply for our CSA program is 5 p.m. Monday, August 27. Click here for more information.
ArtWORKS is a program that fosters creativity and mindfulness by placing art in local businesses, companies, organizations and more. Its focus is primarily on solo exhibitions for visual artists in corporate spaces. However, we also are looking for performing artists, musicians, writers, poets and artisans who could lead an employee engagement activity for those businesses and corporations interested in deepening their commitment to creativity in the workplace. Artist stipends apply.
This is an ongoing Call for Artists. (Please note: The updated application will be posted later this week.) Click here for more information.
