Professional Development Opportunities for Individual Professional Artists
What is an Opportunity?
An opportunity must be a unique experience that clearly contributes to meaningful professional growth and development for the applicant. It may be one of many things, for example, an invitation to exhibit at a prestigious gallery, to study with a mentor or renowned teacher or to perform at a festival out of town. An opportunity might follow from a selection jury or a competitive process. Ultimately, an opportunity can only be defined in the context of each artist’s career.
What Can You Apply For?
Artist Opportunity Grants can cover expenses related to a unique professional opportunity, to a maximum of $2,500. No funding will be provided for opportunities that have already occurred. Grant decisions will be based on the assessment criteria described below. If you have questions about the eligibility of your opportunity, please contact us prior to applying.
When Should You Apply?
Consult the Deadlines and Assessment Criteria sections in the program guidelines. The ideal time to submit an application is when you can make the best case for your opportunity without jeopardizing your access to it. Contact the Community Investment team if you have any questions.
The next set deadline is July 4, 2016.
