APPLY NOW FOR CIVIC ARTS GRANTS
Application Deadline is April 21, 2017
Berkeley, California (Thursday, February 23, 2017) - Artists and art nonprofits based in Berkeley should consider applying for a Civic Arts Grant, which provides funding to enrich Berkeley's arts and culture.
Large organizations can receive up to $12,000, while mid-size organizations apply for up to $8,000. These local government grants play an important role in allowing organizations to leverage more outside funding. The City of Berkeley's Civic Arts grants have supported organizations ranging from Freight & Salvage and the Aurora Theater to the Kala Arts Institute, helping build a thriving base of arts and culture for the region.
This year, the grants also have an increased focus on individual artists, who can receive up to $3,000. Those grants to individuals come with a stipulation that the produced work provide Berkeleyans an opportunity to view the work for free - be it through a gallery showing, reading or performance.
Applications are due April 21, 2017.

The grants program is one piece of the City of Berkeley's Civic Arts Program, which encourages cultural enrichment programs, makes city resources available to cultural groups and coordinates and strengthens existing organizations in the arts.
