05/31/19 - By 5:00 PM (PST); Applications are due at least 30 days prior to the residency.
Grants of up to $1,500 to Nevada nonprofit organizations, schools, colleges, public agencies, and individual artists to support short-term, artist-led residencies. Visiting artists will provide participants with a hands-on educational experience in an artistic discipline or traditional cultural practice. The shape and schedule of the residency is up to the sponsor and the artist. An intensive residency may occur over one to three days, or it may be appropriate to have more residency activities of shorter duration, such as two hours a week for six weeks.
-The primary focus and purpose of the activity involves a visit by an artist/group who provides participants with an active educational experience in the arts or traditional cultural practices. The AREx grant is not intended to support concerts or assembly programs.
-A maximum of three Artist Residency Express Grants per location is allowed, whether applied for by the sponsoring organization or the artist, depending on available funding.
-A maximum of three AREx grants per Roster Artist may be funded.
The Artists in Schools + Communities Roster is an online resource for schools, organizations and communities seeking to engage professional artists. Roster artists have been chosen through an adjudication process, and are skilled in teaching and sharing their specific art form, whether creative writing, dance, film/video, folk traditions, music, photography, sculpture, theater, storytelling or visual arts.
All AREx grant recipients agree to fulfill the following for a residency:
-The activity is educational and involves a visit by an artist who provides participants with an active, hands-on experience in the arts. Supplementary activities such as readings, lecture-demonstrations and lecture-performances may accompany the educational activities but cannot be more than 20% of the residency.
-The residency is planned collaboratively between the artist(s) and appropriate teacher(s) and/or community representative(s).
-For school programs, a full day will not exceed four hours of contact time with participants.
-A teacher or adult representative of the sponsoring organization must be present at all times during the program. If the artist is working with a large group of preK-12 students, the adult-student ratio will be appropriate to the activity.
