Arts Council seeks applications for regional artist project grants

Artists in Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin counties eligible

WINSTON-SALEM — The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County is seeking applications for its Regional Artist Project Grants which offer support to artists in a six-county region to help them further their professional development.  Committed, gifted individual artists and collaborative groups in Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin counties are eligible to apply. Deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 1.

“We are looking for opportunities to make grants that support the careers of area artists at pivotal points in their professional lives. These grants always are diverse because the needs and disciplines of individual artists vary dramatically,” said Jordan Medley, manager of grants and support services for The Arts Council.

Guidelines, applications, and information sessions are available online at www.intothearts.org.

The grants are supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.  Last year, The Arts Council made a total of $24,500 in awards in this grant category to 12 individual artists, collaborations, or music groups.
