ArtsGreensboro announced today that applications are available for the 2019 Regional Artist Grant program, which ArtsGreensboro administers on behalf of a consortium of five counties—Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph, and Rockingham. Funding for this program is provided by the North Carolina Arts Council and matched by participating Arts Councils in the five counties.

 

The application is available online at: https://www.artsgreensboro.org/grant-programs/regional-artist-project-grants/

 

Regional Artist Grants provide support to help exceptionally talented visual, performing, literary, and interdisciplinary artists pursue projects that further their professional artistic development.

 

To be eligible, artists be at least 18 years old and must have lived in their county for the year preceding the submission of their application. While the grants are available to artists at all stage of their careers, artists who are currently enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, or academic certification programs in their art forms may not apply. Artists who received a Regional Artist Grant over the last three years (i.e., 2016, 2017, or 2018) are not eligible.

 

Applicants must submit artistic work samples and provide a narrative case for support. Eligible artistic disciplines include:

 

  • Music,
  • Dance,
  • Visual arts,
  • Film/video,
  • Drama, and

 

Regional Artist Grants provide important financial support for artists across the five counties. In 2018, 19 artists received a total of $18,000 in grants from this program. This cooperative effort fosters relationships between regional arts councils and also encourages networking among artists across counties.
