We are happy to announce that we have set a new deadline for the General Project Grants for Community Engagement category – 4:30 pm Friday, December 4, 2015, for projects occurring between February 1 – September 30, 2016.
Due to a cut to the Arts Council’s state appropriation, there will be significantly less funding for this category than in previous years. This will make the category very competitive, so we encourage you to start your application early and have your narrative and budget reviewed by the Grant Coordinator. Please click here to access guidelines and information about the online application process.
Questions about the new deadline and budget situation should be directed to me at email@example.com or 603-271-8418.

CALL TO ARTISTS: FLEETING MOMENTS
DEADLINE: July 15
The producers of the Vermont opera “A Fleeting Animal” invite visual artists and poets to submit work to hang in a multi-venue exhibit that overlaps with September 2015 performances in Randolph, Barre, Woodstock, Hardwick, Colchester, and Vergennes.
A panel of artists and art lovers affiliated with the David Budbill-Erik Nielsen opera will select works that expand on themes in the staged production, such as: the hardships and joys of rural living; love and loss; distrust of racial and other differences; and the experience of returning veterans, their families and communities. The art show is intended as a counterpoint to the opera. As such, we are searching for work that reflects the duality and balance point between despair and hope, loss and recovery, or fleeting moments that deliver us from the struggles of everyday life.
