The Florida Keys Council of the Arts announces a new grant opportunity, Art Builds Community (ABC), to support arts and culture projects that spark conversations, spur social change, generate cultural equity and make our community stronger. Grant funding be offered at $5,000, $7,500, and $10,000 for projects that support, build, and broaden access to the arts and specifically address civic challenges and community issues through the arts.
Florida Keys artists, arts organizations, and civic/community-based organizations are encouraged to form alliances and partnerships to strengthen communities through projects that connect the arts with local issues and opportunities for all people. The ABC grant deadline is August 1 at midnight. We are presenting two online Zoom workshops to explain the application process. The ABC Application Workshops are being offered on Tuesday, July 13th at 10 am and again on Monday, July 19th at 4 pm via Zoom online platform. Everyone is welcome to attend these online workshops, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org The online application and workshop information is available at www.keysarts.com.
“The Florida Keys Council of the Arts is committed to ensuring that everyone in our community has equal access to the arts and we encourage applicants to join us in this endeavor,” said executive director Elizabeth Young. “Many of our residents experience vast disparities in terms of access to and participation in arts and culture activities. We believe the arts have the power to change hearts and minds and inspire social change.”
Art Builds Community is funded in part by The Helmerich Trust, Ocean Sotheby’s, and private donations.
