The Northampton Arts Council, Inc. announces a special, locally supported arts grant round. Reimbursement grants will be available to area writers, painters, photographers, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, schools, and all other creatives and small arts organizations for projects held in Northampton, Florence, and Leeds.
Completed applications with 14 copies and 1 set of supporting materials must be received by 4:30 pm on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, in the office of the Northampton Arts Council on the second floor of Memorial Hall, Room 5, 240 Main Street in Northampton. No late applications will be accepted.
Guidelines and an application are available via: http://www.northamptonartscouncil.org
Projects must start no earlier than July 1, 2012, and be completed by June 30, 2013.
This spring the Arts Council will be awarding grants in the following categories: dance, film/video, literature, mixed media, music, schools, theater, and visual arts.
Last spring the Council awarded $12,500 to 16 recipients with grants ranging from $500-$1,100.
Money to support this grant round was raised at last summer's Transperformance 21: Royalty and the Four Sundays in February '12 series. This local round of funding would not have been possible without the support of numerous local businesses, arts organizations, and artists that have helped make our fundraising efforts such a huge success.
