What better way to leave the past decade behind and start the next than with a brilliant arts idea and $10,000 to make it happen? The most amazing thing about this Art Creates Community Grant from The Bee Vradenburg Foundation and Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado is, well… many things! Let us count the ways:
1. Unlike many grants from non-profit arts foundations, this grant is actually open to individual artists as well as non-profit organizations (though individuals must partner with a non-profit to be eligible)
2. Unlike most grants, which are often decided by boards of directors in closed meetings, this grant will be decided publicly by the people (i.e. you), which obviously means social networking will play an important part in determining the victor.
3. As long as the proposed project addresses the theme, “Art Creates Community” and you live within El Paso or Teller Counties, anything goes.
We don’t care what John Hazlehurst says, we think this is the kind of competitive, community-oriented arts grant that foundations should look toward to inspire involvement and participation in the coming decade, and we’re proud to be media sponsors.
Keep in mind that the submission deadline is 5 p.m. on January 29. Good luck and you can download the complete guidelines HERE.
