Recognizing that artists are an essential resource to a vital community, the Artist Advancement Grant Program was established in 2002 to provide financial support to individual visual artists and craftspeople in the Piscataqua Region to promote their artistic growth. The Foundation seeks to make grants that reflect and support the diversity of ideas, art forms, expression and culture of the artistic community of this region and therefore seeks applicants who represent this diversity.
The purpose of the award is not to reward past work, but to recognize the applicant best positioned to continue the improvement of their artistic career.
Eligible art disciplines* include:
*Those with questions about whether a particular art form is eligible should contact the Program Consultant.
