Artistic Collaboration Project Grant

Purpose

The funding priority of the artistic collaboration project grant is to support activities of a group of artists working in a collaborative project that helps advance the artistic development of the artists and ensembles involved. When applicable, priority is given to projects that ensure access to the arts for all residents and visitors; projects that help stimulate economic and community development through the arts; and projects that emphasize arts programming that develops and/or attract new arts audiences. The project or collaborative relationship should not be permanent or ongoing. Collaborations that are aiming to evolve into a permanent entity are not eligible for this grant category.
