The Individual Artist Grant represents a “live & work” investment in local artists. They are designed to increase support for local artist-initiated activity, and to highest the role of artists as important members of the community. These grants are intended to support creative artists (not interpretive), in the creation of new
work. Community engagement is an essential element of this grant opportunity. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program, such as a public exhibition or performance, and/or the inclusion of community involvement in the project’s development and creative process.
