2009 CAP Grants – Applications available

The 2009 Community Arts Partnership grants applications have just been listed.  An exciting addition this year only is the Stimulus Awards for Individual Artists.  These $1000 grants are available to all types of artists regardless of whether they involve the community in their work or not.  And there are no restrictions on the use of funds.

This is really exciting for local artists,  most of whom don’t use the community directly in the creation of their work.  I’ve thought it was unfortunate that the CAP IIs had to be restricted in this way, but understand those parameters come from the original funders, not CAP.

The Stimulus Awards recognize that artists, working alone, who create art that addresses the concerns of the community, or addresses our history, culture, politics, ethics, sciences, etc. are making work of great benefit to our local community.
