Applications for Artist and Community Collaborations Grants Are Now Available
The Wisconsin Arts Board announces that applications for the Artist and Community Collaborations Grant (ACCG) program are now available on the Arts Board's website and must be submitted electronically on or before October 15, 2010.
The purpose of the ACCG program is to encourage collaborative projects between artists and their communities that support the development of the individual artist, use the power of the arts for community renewal, and actively engage community members. Funds are available for artists who initiate a partnership project with a community organization.
The maximum request that can be considered is $5,000. Grants must be matched at least dollar for dollar in either cash or a combination of cash and in-kind contributions.
All ACCG application materials are available through the Wisconsin Arts Board’s Artist and Community Collaborations Grant program page. Materials include the full application and guidelines, eligibility requirements, details on the application process, a timetable and instructions for preparing an application.
First time applicants should contact the staff of the Wisconsin Arts Board before applying. The staff of the Wisconsin Arts Board, available for technical assistance throughout the year, can explain and clarify guidelines and eligibility requirements, review criteria and definitions. Discussions with the staff do not influence funding decisions. Call (608) 264-8191, weekdays between 8:30am and 4:30pm for assistance.
