Individual Artists Grant Guidelines and Application
Individual Artist Grant Guidelines 2023
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Arts Council for Wyoming County.
The Arts Council for Wyoming County encourages artists to apply for project funding through an initiative specifically designed for artists to create new work in their own communities. This opportunity is designed to increase support for artist-initiated activity and highlight the role of artists as important members of the community. This grant supports and enables artists to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in Allegany and Wyoming Counties. An essential element of this funding is a community engagement component. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program, such as an exhibition or performance that is open to the public, and/or the inclusion of community involvement in the development and creative processes of the artists’ project. The program looks for proposals of high artistic merit and asks that the artist consider the unique characteristics of Allegany and Wyoming Counties when developing the project. Visual, literary, media, and performing artists may apply. Projects must be completed in the same county as the applicant’s address.
2023 Final Reports are due no later than 30 days after the completion of the project. All reports must be submitted by January 27, 2024.
