ArtsWestchester is accepting applications from non-profit arts organizations and individual artists in Westchester for 2018 Arts Alive Grants. These grants are designed to help make arts and cultural activities easily accessible to a wide community audience, especially in areas where access is limited. Funds are available in three categories: Project Grants provide financial support for projects that demonstrate a strong community benefit. Artist Grants provide direct support for the creation of new work related to the community. Education Grants support in-school and after-school learning projects. The application deadline is October 4. Several pre-application workshops will take place leading up to the deadline. For guidelines and workshop details, visit: artsw.org/artsalive.
