Grants ranging from $3,000 to $12,000 to Tennessee nonprofits, government units, and educational institutions in the Foundation's service area to support quality arts and arts access programs. LOIs are due February 16, 2018.
The Foundation seeks to support excellence in the arts, expand access to the arts, and connect artists with each other and with East Tennessee communities. Funding will support programs by professionally managed arts organizations, programs by organizations that are not primarily arts providers, arts activities designed primarily as therapy, and/or schools providing arts and cultural projects of special merit.
Special Consideration will be given to:
-Projects that extend arts opportunities to under-served populations (such as rural, ethnic, low-income).
-Public art displays and performances that that are designed to bring the arts into the everyday lives of the general public (such as murals, free or random public performances, and sculptures).
- Projects that partner with minority or underrepresented artists
- Preference will be given to organizations that were not recipients of Arts Fund grants during the most recent grant term.
