The Arts in Society grant program announces another year of funding to support cross-sector work in the arts across Colorado

Beginning July 16, applications will be accepted for funding through the Arts in Society grant program. The purpose of Arts in Society is to foster cross-sector work through the arts by supporting the integration of arts and culture into multiple disciplines critical to the health and well-being of Coloradans. The Arts in Society grant program funds projects that engage arts organizations and artists as partners in illuminating and finding solutions to a wide array of civic and social challenges faced by our communities. Grants between $10,000-$50,000 will be available to non-profit organizations and individual artists or activists to fund projects that will take place in Colorado between April 2019-April 2021.

Grants will be determined by a selection panel and will seek projects that best illustrate artistic excellence, broaden the understanding of the role arts play in society, demonstrate cross-sector work, exhibit cultural relevance, foster community engagement, and present opportunities for shared learning.

Arts in Society is a collaborative grantmaking program administered by RedLine Contemporary Art Center and funded through a cohort of Colorado foundations, including Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and Colorado Creative Industries.
