Grants to North Carolina and South Carolina artists and groups of artists in eligible areas for professional development opportunities and equipment purchases or rentals. Artists must be located in the counties of Cleveland, Cabarrus, Gaston, Lincoln, Iredell, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Rutherford, Stanly, or Union, North Carolina, or York, South Carolina. Funding is intended to allow area artists to pursue projects that further enhance their artistic development.
Regional Artist Project Grant dollars must be used to support a single purpose. In most cases, this means support for a single item – workshop or conference fee, taking a master class, purchase or rental of a piece of equipment or supply materials. In some instances, there may be shared or related expenses that are also legitimate. For instance, attendance at a conference AND travel costs to attend; or, a major piece of equipment AND a necessary additional component (a saw AND a blade).
In the past, artists have been awarded grants for the following types of projects:
- To work with master artists in their field
- To purchase equipment (laptop, art supplies, etc.)
- To pay for conference or workshop fees
- To rent studio time for the completion of a specific project
