Funding available for Vermont artists and arts organizations
MIDDLEBURY — Funding is now available for Vermont artists and arts organizations through the Vermont Arts Endowment Fund and the Concert Artists Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation.
The Vermont Arts Endowment Fund awards grants up to $5,000 to support the creation and presentation of new work by Vermont artists and arts organizations. Grants are typically made in the fields of dance; theater; music composition and performance; creative writing, including poetry, short stories, novels and plays; sculpture; painting; photography; and film, although work in other media may also be eligible.
The Concert Artists Fund awards grants up to $10,000 per year to support organizations that present performances of classical music in Chittenden County. New this year, the Concert Artists Fund will switch to a two-year funding cycle of up to $10,000 per year. There will be no open Concert Artist Fund grant round in 2017. The Vermont Arts Endowment Fund will continue to accept applications on an annual basis.
Applications to both funds will be accepted through a new earlier deadline of April 1. Visit www.vermontcf.org/availablegrants to learn more.
