The Arts Councils of Alleghany, Ashe, Watauga, and Wilkes are pleased to offer a grant awards program just for artists. The ARTIST SUPPORT GRANT OF NORTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA offers competitive grants to artists living in these four counties. Grant awards are made to individual artists from a pool of funds provided by the participating counties and matched by funds from the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency.
Being able to fund individual artist projects is a goal of our organizations and we look forward to providing tangible, monetary support to several of you. Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply; Artist Support Grant winners must wait one year to reapply for funding.
Since its inception in 1998 a total of 201 grant awards have been made to fund things such as marketing, education, equipment, and more. The primary goal of the project is to help an artist move from one level to the next in their artistic career and artists are evaluated on the basis of artistic excellence.
