Artists & Communities Grants Workshop for nonprofit community organizations

Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation
In partnership with the
Stockton Rush Barton Foundation
Artists & Communities Grants Workshop
Monday, October 16, 2006 from 4-6pm
Atlas Performing Arts Center, Washington, DC
Free Informational Workshop:  Come join Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, in partnership with the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Maryland State Arts Council, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts, for a brief overview of the Artists & Communities program and grant application process.  This workshop is intended for nonprofit community organizations that are interested in hosting visiting artists for one-to-six month residencies.  Discussion will include best practices and examples of successful projects.

DC Artists are welcome to attend. Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation is working on securing funding to expand the Artists & Communities program to include DC artists beginning with the 2007-2008 cycle. At this time, that funding has not been confirmed, but it seems possible that DC artists might be eligible during 2007-2008. The Foundation expects to make an announcement on DC artist eligibility in the next two weeks.
Artists & Communities supports residencies by visiting artists from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania at nonprofit organizations throughout the mid-Atlantic region (Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia).  Proposals for residencies that will occur between April 1, 2007 and March 31, 2008 are due Monday, December 4, 2006.  Grants generally range from $5,000-20,000.  Artists & Communities applications/guidelines for 2007-2008 will be available in September 2006 at
The workshop will be held at:
Atlas Performing Arts Center
