The GO ART! Individual Artist Commission (RIPPLE Grant) supports local, artist-initiated activity, and highlights the role of artists as important members of the community. The Commission is for artistic projects with outstanding artistic merit that work within a community setting.
Up to four grants will be awarded per County. The project must take place in the same county the applicant artist permanently resides.
These grants are intended to engage artists creating new, original work, like composers, writers, and visual artists. Artists at various career stages are welcome to apply.
The work must be artist initiated and reflect community life, culture, and/or engage local communities. The project should involve a segment of the community through some sort of feedback, response, interaction (such as a showing, exhibition, public performance, etc.), and/or social practice.
WHO MAY APPLY: Individuals ONLY.
AWARD AMOUNT: $2500
PROJECT PERIOD: January 1 – December 31, 2021
