Station North Arts and Entertainment District, Inc., as part of the recent grant they received from the National Endowment for the Arts, has launched a grant program for artists, curators, organizations, and venue owners or managers located in Station North or partnering with a venue or organization in Station North. $5,000 will be available each month, with awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Projects must take place between November 15, 2011 and September 30, 2012.
I personally think this is a very exciting grant opportunity for artists across the region as it is not limited solely to artists working in Station North. The proposal process (as applications go) is rather simple. The big challenge is thinking up and putting forward a great idea. There are three deadlines–October 15, January 15, and May 15. For more details, visit the Station North website. If you have questions, contact Ben Stone, the director of Station North. He’s encouraging interested applicants to contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Until next week–
