TOE RIVER ARTS COUNCIL
Toe River Arts Artist Applications & Opportunities
Deadline to apply: October 11, 2019 by 5:00pm
The Regional Artist Project Grant is an annual grant program that provides financial support to developing professionals by funding a project pivotal to the advancement of their careers as artists. The selection criteria include artistic merit, the potential of the project to contribute to the artist’s professional growth, and the feasibility of the project itself. The Asheville Area Arts Council, Toe River Arts Council, and the Madison County Arts Council are pleased to announce the 2019/2020 Regional Artist Project Grant application is open.
The Regional Artist Project Grants awarded range from $400 – $1,200. Full or partial cash match is not required but is preferred. Artists currently enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate program and artists who have received a Regional Artist Project Grant within the last two funding cycles are not eligible.
Each year the three arts councils hold grant workshops. These are highly recommended. If you’ve never applied for funding or are unsure of your project, please try to attend one of these workshops:
- Thursday, Sept 5 at 4:00-6:30 on the second floor at our Burnsville location (102 W. Main Street, Burnsville)
- Thursday, Sept 12 at 5:30-7:00 on the second floor of our Spruce Pine location (269 Oak St., Spruce Pine)
- Thursday, Sept 19 at 4:00-6:00pm at the Avery Learning Center (785 Cranberry Street, Newland)
