The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County and ArtsGreensboro will be the lead arts councils and will take on the administrative duties of administering the grant and holding the review panel to determine awardees. 

Artist Support Grants (formerly the Regional Artist Project Grant Program) will be distributed to eligible applicants by Arts Greensboro in the following counties: Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, and Randolph.

The deadline to submit applications is Sunday, October 4, 2020 by 11:59pm.

Grants will range in awards from $500 to $2000. 

There will be two grant orientations and training workshops held via zoom to assist with the application process and to address any questions about the new Artist Support Grant program.

Emerging or established artists are encouraged to apply to support a range of professional and artistic development including the creation of work, improvement of business operations, or expanding capacity to bring work to new audiences. New this year, artists are highly encouraged to include up to 50% of their budget towards their artistic fees. Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply including artists who are currently receiving a Regional Artist Project Grant. To learn more about the Artist Support Grant click here.
