Regional Artist Project of Northwest North Carolina

The Ashe County Arts Council
Regional Artist Project of Northwest North Carolina

The Arts Councils of Alleghany, Ashe, Watauga, and Wilkes are pleased to announce a grant awards program just for artists. The REGIONAL ARTIST PROJECT OF NORTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA offers competitive grants to artists living in these four counties. We are excited to be able to offer funding to individuals and it is done with a Regional Artist Project Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency.

Being able to fund individual artist projects is a goal of our organizations and we look forward to providing tangible, monetary support to several of you. Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply; Regional Artist Project winners from 2018-2019 must wait one year to reapply for funding. Awards generally range from $250 to $1000. Guidelines for the project and an application form are included with this letter.

Several information sessions are planned to help artists with the application process. If you have any questions or would like to attend, we encourage you to contact your local arts council. Northwest North Carolina is blessed with many fine artists; we look forward to partnering with you in supporting your creative ventures.

2019 Application Deadline

Completed application packets should be received at the Ashe County Arts Council no later than September 13th, 2019 by 5pm.
