Youth Arts Project Grants:
For Creative Youth Development

Deadline: April 15, 2016

Grant Coordinator: Catherine O'Brian

(603) 271-0795

Youth Arts Project Grants fund high-quality arts and cultural programs that encourage creativity, develop new arts skills and foster success for young people beyond the normal school day. Recognizing that opportunities to experience and engage in the arts, such as music, dance, theater, visual arts, crafts, photography and creative writing, may be limited in classrooms, this grant provides funding for artists to work directly with young people after regular school hours, in the summer or on weekends, in or outside of the school. The overall goal of this grant category is to afford all young people opportunities to engage in the arts so that they can develop creative problem solving skills, positive forms of personal expression, and become more engaged in their communities through the arts.
