The application process has started for two categories of the Horizons Grants Program through the Salina Arts & Humanities Foundation.
According to the organization, Organizational Project Grants, along with the Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grants, are now open for application. Deadline to apply is November 2nd.
These grants support artistic growth through Saline County’s cultural and nonprofit organizations and practicing artists.
Thanks to generous donors, Horizons grants facilitate Saline County artists and organizations to develop the artistic, cultural, historic and aesthetic resources of the community.
The Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grants (up to $2000, requiring a 1:2 match) are available to any visual, performing, literary and interdisciplinary artist who has demonstrated seriousness to an art form, but who has not yet firmly established a career as a full-time practicing artist. Artists living in Saline County for at least one year and who are 18 years or older are eligible to apply.
The purpose of the Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grant is to:
- foster the creation of new work
- promote artistic growth
- strengthen the ability of artists to build partnerships
- implement a public component to engage the community
Organizational Project Grants (up to $6,000, requiring a 1:1 match) provide support for projects that place the arts at the heart of community development, to build community through the arts.
The grant-application deadline is November 2, 2020 in either category, for projects that will occur during the 2021 grant cycle (February 1 – November 30, 2021.) All new applicants for the Developing Artist or Organizational Project grants must schedule a meeting with SAH staff no later than September 21, 2020. All returning applicants must notify SAH staff by October 5, 2020 of their intent to apply.
Additionally, Horizons Enrichment Grants (up to $500) are available on an ongoing basis, with applications submitted six weeks before the beginning of the proposed project. For budgetary reasons, Horizons Enrichment Grants will not be awarded December 1, 2020 through January 31, 2021.
