Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge has announced the applications for Artist Support Grant Program to provide direct support to individual artists during and following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative will fund professional artists to enhance their skills and abilities to create work, or to improve their business operations, and capacity to bring their work to new audiences.
This program funds regional consortia of local arts councils that award project grants to artists in their regions. These grants support professional artists in all disciplines and at any stage in their careers to pursue projects that further their artistic developments. Types of fundable projects include:
Participating consortia promote the grant opportunity to the artists in their region, set specific regional guidelines in accordance with Arts Council guidelines, appoint a selection committee made up of arts professionals with expertise in disciplines under review, and facilitate the selection and award process. North Carolina Arts Council staff advises each regional consortium and attends selection panel meetings.
