Invitation to Apply For Horizons Grants

The application process has started for Salina Arts & Humanities Foundation grant funding.

According to the organization, the application process has begun for two categories of the Horizons Grants Program. The Organizational Project Grants, along with the Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grants, are now open for application with a deadline of November 1, 2017. These grants support artistic growth through Salina’s cultural and nonprofit organizations and practicing artists.

Thanks to generous donors, Horizons grants facilitate Salina and Saline County artists and organizations in developing the artistic, cultural, historic and aesthetic resources of the community.

The Lana Jordan Developing Artist Grants (up to $3000, requiring a 1:2 match) are available to any highly skilled 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 the period of 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 $8,000, requiring a 1:1 match) provide support for projects that place the arts at the heart of community development in an effort to build community through the arts.

The deadline is November 1, 2017 in either category for projects that will occur from February 1, 2018 through November 30, 2018.

Horizons Enrichment Grants ($500) are available on an ongoing basis, with application submitted six weeks prior to the beginning of the proposed project. For budgetary reasons, Horizons Enrichment Grants will not be awarded December 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018.
