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 to support organizations that present performances of classical music in Chittenden County. Participation in the Vermont Cultural Data Project is no longer a requirement to receive grants from either fund. Applications to both funds will be accepted through May 1, 2015.
