Arts for Underserved Populations
The State Arts Council seeks to ensure that all people in New Hampshire have access to the enrichment and joy art brings to community life and to personal fulfillment.
Arts in Health Care Initiatives, Grants, & Programs
The arts support healing and wellness – both for those receiving and those giving care – by offering a natural, evidenced-based, cost effective complement to treatment. Engaging with the arts encourages creative approaches to healing and wellness, and offers people a sense of self and wholeness when they are feeling most fragile.
Cultural Facilities grant
This funding helps organizations seeking to make their facilities barrier free.
Going Beyond ADA requirements:
The State Arts Council encourages all arts & culture organizations to develop creative ways to ensure that people of all ages, circumstances and abilities are able to participate and enjoy the arts.
