Grants will soon be available to Louisiana's arts community, says SRAC's Ariej Alexander. Workshops to assist grant seekers in the application process are scheduled for January 2007. The workshops will be led by the Louisiana Division of the Arts, which oversees and distributes state and federal grant funds.
Visual artists, craftsmen, musicians, creative writers, designers, theater and dance professionals in addition to nonprofit/governmental entities whose mission is to provide arts programming to the public are eligible. Grants are also available for the development of arts education programs in schools.
The workshops will walk applicants through new grants programs and the application process step-by-step. There will be opportunities to meet with Division of the Arts staff one-on-one and network with other arts community members seeking grants.
All workshops and sessions are free. The Grant Workshop Schedule is available on the Division of the Arts website at http://www.crt.state.la.us/arts/WorkShops.shtml
