Artist Support Grants (previously called Professional Development Grants and Regional Artist Project Grants) fund professional and artistic development for emerging and established artists to create work, improve their business operations, or bring their work to new audiences. Artist Support Grants support a broad range of talented artists in the genres of visual arts, performing arts, literary arts, and interdisciplinary arts.
Individual artists and small, unincorporated groups of collaborating artists who have lived in Chatham, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, or Wake County for at least one year are eligible to apply for grants up to $1,500.
The deadline to apply is Thursday, October 1, 2020.
New this year:
- All eligible artists may apply even if they have received a Professional Development Grant from United Arts in the past.
- All projects for the 2021 Artist Support Grants must be completed by June 30, 2021.
- Up to 50% of the grant may be used to pay the artist applicants for their work on the project.
