CEDAR CITY–The Cedar City Arts Council encourages individual artists and arts organizations to apply for Artists’ Mini-Grants, due by February 28. Application and more information is available at http://www.cedarcityartscouncil.org/?page_id=141.
Past projects have included funding for lights for the Iron County Acoustic Music Association, art supplies for after school art programs, an easel for an artist, funding for a string bass case, music for the children’s choir, music for the Red Rock Singers, registration for an art teacher’s art workshop, money to help non-RAP groups pay for venue rental, and many more. The Cedar City Arts Council works to promote local art and artists.
Grant funds may be used to purchase supplies or equipment, rent displays or performance venues, support mileage or registration costs to attend educational or training sessions, purchase promotional advertising, or other needs as revealed in the grant application. Our goal is to broaden our cultural landscape through unusual, unique, and innovative ideas, events, and projects.
It is valuable to include samples of previous work with the application. The Cedar City Arts Council Grants Committee reviews the applications and is pleased to offer several grants each cycle. Members of the CCAC help fund this project with their memberships to increase the artist offerings of our area. Membership information is at http://www.cedarcityartscouncil.org/?page_id=278.
