ARTIST SUPPORT GRANTS PROGRAMS FY 2020-21 This program, funded by the N.C. Arts Council, provides the opportunity for regional consortia of local arts councils to award project grants to artists in their regions. These grants support professional artists in any discipline and at any stage in their careers to pursue projects that further their professional development. Types of fundable projects include:
Creation of new work
Purchase of equipment and materials
Professional development workshops
Travel support for expenses associated with a professional opportunity such as participating in an exhibition or a conference
Development or upgrading of promotional materials such as brochures, DVDs, CDs, and websites
Artist fees are also allowable expenses under the new program. Grant amounts vary from region to region. Statewide, they range from $300 to $5,000, though most grants are between $500 and $2,000. Projects must be completed by June 30, 2021. A list of participating counties, deadlines for each region, and a primary contact for each consortium appears below.
