Grassroots Arts Program Grant

Sub-granting application reopens summer 2022

Applications are available for non-profit organizations, or organizations operating as a non-profit, who seek to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Wilkes County.  Funding priority is given to qualified arts organizations (theaters, galleries, choral societies, festivals, etc.), arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists, and other community organizations that provide arts programs in the county. Grassroots funds are not generally awarded to arts organizations that receive funding through the NC Arts Council’s State Arts Resources.

Grant applications are evaluated by a diverse panel of community members and voted on by the Wilkes Art Gallery Board of Directors. Awards will be announced in September of this year.
