Teaming up to provide local musicians with grants to further their creativity

Grants awarded to 18 individual artists and musicians for a total of $36,000 in 2020

With almost a decade of awarding grants to support local artists working in dance, literature, media, music, theater, traditional and folk arts and craft, and the visual arts, the umbrella arts organization has granted $130,123 since 2012.

“We believe that artists are an essential part of the region’s cultural vitality,” says TAP CEO Dayna Del Val.

Jade Presents has partnered with The Arts Partnership for the past five years, funding the musician grants by allocating a portion of every ticket sold at its Bluestem Summer Concert Series.
