Grants of up to $2,000 to Kansas early-career artists in eligible locations for career development. Applicants must submit their intent to apply and must meet with program staff prior to submitting a full proposal. Eligible artists may work in a range of artistic disciplines, including performing, visual, literary, and interdisciplinary arts. These grants are intended to not only advance an artist's career but also to demonstrate community impact through a committed public component. Eligible applicants are residents of Saline County.

Expected Program Outcomes:

  1. Foster the creation of new work
  2. Promote artistic growth
  3. Strengthen the ability of artists to build partnerships
  4. Implement a public component to engage the community.

Grants are typically awarded for the following activities: 

  • Presentation – Funds may be requested to complete or produce a significant new work of art. Eligible requests may include: 1) the cost of purchasing necessary supplies and materials; or 2) the cost of renting a facility for a public presentation of the work.
  • Study & Training – Training funds should be used to advance the applicant’s artistic skills. Funding requests may include, for example, covering the fee to attend a master class conducted by an acknowledged authority in the artist’s discipline, attending a workshop which will assist the applicant in some aspect of presenting his or her work in a more effective and professional manner, or identifying and working with a mentor on a specific project.
  • Artistic Promotion – Funds may be requested for the development and distribution of a professional quality publication, demonstration audiotape, videotape, or a portfolio of work samples.
  • Equipment – Funds may be requested for the purchase of equipment related to the applicant’s art form (for example: kiln, darkroom equipment, computers, musical instruments, etc.).
  • Travel – As judged appropriate in the context of the application, is allowed.

As part of the funding, applicants are asked to share the outcome of the grant activity through a public component.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Applicants: Any highly-skilled visual, performing, literary and/or interdisciplinary artist who has demonstrated dedication to his/her art form, but who has not yet firmly established his/her career as a full-time, practicing artist. Applicants must be 18 years or older and a resident of Saline County for at least one year prior to the application due date.

Eligible candidates are not required to earn a living exclusively through the practice of their art form. However, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to do so, when and if it becomes feasible.

Beyond these general guidelines, the decision of exactly who qualifies as a Developing Artist is ultimately determined by the Salina Arts and Humanities Department according to guidelines and criteria.
