Arts Council seeking individual artists and groups to apply for Artist Support Grants

Artists in Davie, Davidson, Forsyth, Guilford, and Randolph counties are eligible

WINSTON-SALEM — Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County is seeking individual artists and incorporated artist groups to apply for its annual Artist Support Grant Program. These grants help artists in a five-county region further their professional and artistic development. Committed, gifted individual artists and collaborative groups in Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Guilford and Randolph counties are eligible to apply. Grants will range from $500-$2,000. Applications are due on or before 11:59 pm. on Monday, Oct. 18.

“Over the past year and a half, artists have been deeply impacted by the pandemic,” says Chase Law, Arts Council president and CEO. “This grant program will directly invest in artists and their creative projects and continue helping them get back to work.”

Guidelines and application are available at intothearts.org/artist-support-grant. Artists in all disciplines and at any stage of development are eligible and encouraged to apply. Also, artists who are currently receiving an Artists Support Grant eligible to apply. Artists may include up to 50% of their budget as their artistic fees. Grants will be made to support a range of professional and artistic development, including the creation of work, improvement of business operations and expanding capacity to bring work to new audiences.

The grants are supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, and are jointly administered by Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County and ArtsGreensboro. Additional regional partners include Arts Davidson County, Davie County Arts Council, High Point Arts Council and Randolph Arts Guild.
