What We Fund
Regional Artist Project Grant funds provide financial support to a broad range of exceptionally talented visual, performing, literary and inter-disciplinary artists by funding a project that will have a significant impact on the advancement of their professional artistic career. The applicant may be an emerging or established artist and as a general rule should have completed some basic education in his/her art form. A deserving applicant will have a strong record of artistic accomplishment appropriate to the stage of his/her career. Regional Artist Project Grants are intended to fund a particular project that begins no earlier than January 1 and concludes by December 31 of the same year. While no specific limits have been established, awards may range from $500 - $2,500. Applicants may receive full or partial funding. Grant writing workshops will be held to assist interested artists. See application for grant writing workshop information.  Attendance is not required.

Who May Apply
Individual artists and small, unincorporated groups of collaborating artists are eligible to apply. Artist groups must have a formal partnership that furthers their careers in order to qualify. A jazz quartet, a dance duo or a visual artist partnership are examples of qualifying groups. Grant Disciplines for 2014 cycle: All performing, literary & film arts.

Please note: Brunswick, Columbus, Pender and New Hanover counties are now administered by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.

Application Process
All completed Regional Artist Program Grant applications will be judged by discipline-based artists and art educators on the criteria listed above. A multi-county panel comprised of professional artists, art educators/administrators and arts advocates review the applications and the judges’ evaluations and allocates funds for selected projects. Grant recommendations will be approved by the Board of Trustees of the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County. Incomplete applications will not be presented to the panel.
