Applications for the Arts Council’s Individual Artist Grants are being accepted now through Friday, Jan. 20. Since application documents are being submitted through Dropbox online, anyone thinking of applying is encouraged to start early and leave enough time in case of technical issues. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.
Also, the last chance to attend one of our Grant Questions Hours is Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 3 pm. Call 813-276-8250 to reserve a spot as these are small group sessions where Arts Council staff answers questions and goes over the application process. If you’ve never applied for a grant before, these meetings can be invaluable.
The Arts Council has been operating this grant program for Hillsborough County artists since 1989. To date, we’ve given $730,000 in awards to local artists. In 2017, we’ll be adding $40,000 to that total. The grants are funded by the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, the Arts Council’s FIVE by FIVE fundraiser and individual donations.
Help us get the word out to Hillsborough artists by forwarding or sharing this info with them. Thank you!
