Vermont Studio Center (VSC) has been approved for a $25,000 Grants for Arts Projects award to support the continuation and expansion of VSC’s online programming. Vermont Studio Center’s Virtual Program is among 1,073 projects across America totaling nearly $25 million that were selected during this first round of fiscal year 2021 funding in the Grants for Arts Projects funding category.
“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support this project from Vermont Studio Center,” said Arts Endowment Acting Chairman Ann Eilers. “Vermont Studio Center is among the arts organizations across the country that have demonstrated creativity, excellence, and resilience during this very challenging year.”
“VSC’s project extends services beyond the physical confines of our campus and enhances the artistic practice of thousands of artists nationwide,” said VSC Executive Director Elyzabeth Holford. “We are extremely grateful for the support from the National Endowment for the Arts.”
Vermont Studio Center (VSC) is an international artist residency that also serves an external community of more than 42,000 artists, writers, and patrons. In response to the Covid-19 temporary suspension of on-site residencies, we have expanded our online offerings to include a variety of artist talks, readings, workshops, and writing exchange groups. We anticipate that online programming will continue to be a vital component of our services for our extended community.
