Artist Support Grants

Presented by North Carolina Arts Council 

North Carolina Arts Council has unveiled a new program titled Artist Support Grants, to respond to the impact of the pandemic by ensuring that artists and the state’s arts infrastructure have the resources needed to help our state make a strong recovery. 

The new program will support the full, diverse range of artists in our communities, from traditional to contemporary artists and across all disciplines.

Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply for grants to support their professional and artistic development through a partnership of the North Carolina Arts Council and Pocosin Arts, Arts of the Pamlico, Dare County Arts Council, and Martin County Arts Council.

DCAC will be hosting two Zoom workshops sessions for those interested in applying for the grant.  The workshops are free, please follow these links for more information about how to join these Zoom meetings.

Artist Support Grants will be distributed to eligible applicants in the following counties: Tyrrell, Dare, Washington, Martin, Beaufort, and Hyde.

The deadline is Friday, October 30, 2020. Grants will range in awards from $500 to $1,000.

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. Artist fees are also allowable expenses.  Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply.
