ARTS COUNCIL OFFERS GRANT FOR LOCAL ARTISTS AND GROUPS
Art Builds Community Grant Deadline December 15
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 is 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 first ABC grant deadline is December 15. We will continue the application process with a second deadline of December 31, and a third deadline of January 15, 2021. The online application 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 the fundamental right to express their culture through the arts,” 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.”
Free ABC Application Workshops are being offered on Friday November 20th at 10 am via Zoom online platform. Everyone is welcome to attend these online workshops, please RSVP to email@example.com
Art Builds Community is funded in part by The Helmerich Trust, Ocean Sotheby’s and private donations.
