Arts Partners

Artist in Residence Grants (AIR)

Deadline: April 21, 2023
(For projects occurring between August 1, 2023 - September 30, 2024)

Contact: Allison Hawkins

Match will not be required for FY24 grant applications

Matching funds will be waived for Fiscal Year 2024 (July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024) however, we encourage applicants to include in-kind or cash match as part of their budget to increase the strength of their application, collaboration with community partners and enhance the funding of their project.

Artist in Residence (AIR) grants fund artist residencies that bring juried teaching artists into classrooms and public schools to support creative learning and skills development in the arts. AIR grants funded by the State Arts Council are intended to show best practices for this work and can support residencies in a variety of arts disciplines.
