Performing Arts Fund

The Division of Humanities contributes to performing arts in the community through its Performing Arts Fund. Each year up to $20,000 is allocated in grants for performance projects.

Who is the Performing Arts Fund for?

The purpose of the Performing Arts Fund is to provide funding, usually up to $1500, to help performers or performance projects to present their project to the public. It is not intended to cover the full cost of performances.
