ARTIST SUPPORT GRANTS PROGRAM FY 2021-22

This program, funded by the N.C. Arts Council, provides the opportunity for regional consortia of local arts councils to award project grants to artists in their regions. These grants support professional artists in any discipline and at any stage in their careers to pursue projects that further their artistic and professional development. Types of fundable projects include:

  • Creation of new work

  • Purchase of equipment and materials

  • Professional development workshops

  • Travel support for expenses associated with a professional opportunity such as participating in an exhibition or a conference

  • Development or upgrading of promotional materials such as brochures, DVDs, CDs, and websites

Artist fees are also allowable expenses under the new program. Grant amounts vary from region to region. Statewide, most grants are between $500 and $2,000. Projects must be completed by December 31, 2022. A list of participating counties, deadlines for each region, and a primary contact for each consortium appears below. Regions are listed from west to east.

All regions are currently accepting applications for year two of the N.C. Artist Support Grant.
