Regional Artist Project Grant Applications Now Available

Applications for the Regional Artist Project Grant (RAPG) are now available. The grant provides funding for individuals and unincorporated groups of artists to pursue projects that further enhance their artistic development.

This year the RAPG will be open to artists in all disciplines and provides an all or nothing grant of up to $2,000 to pay for one professional development fee, or to purchase or rent one piece of equipment. In previous years, eligibility for the grant rotated between art disciplines and made a distinction between emerging and established artists.

Arts & Science Council (ASC) President Scott Provancher said the organization is thrilled with the changes to program.

“The RAPG is the only grant program we offer that is available solely for the purpose of artist development,” Provancher said. “We are excited that this revamped grant program will allow us to invest in more regional artists.”

Applications are available at and must be submitted online by noon on Thursday, September 22, 2011.

The RAPG is funded in part by ASC, arts councils in Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Rowan, Rutherford and York counties, the North Carolina Arts Council and the Blumenthal Endowment.

There will be two information sessions for interested applicants to ask questions and find out more about the program.
