Applications for Artist Support Grants are now available on ArtsGreensboro’s website using a new portal system. Funded by North Carolina Arts Council, the Artist Support Grant Program(formally the Regional Artist Project Grant Program) provides professional and artistic development grants to eligible artists. The North Carolina Arts Council has designated ArtsGreensboro and The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County as the lead art councils for the five-county region, including Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford and Randolph County. The lead arts councils take on the administrative duties of administering the grant and holding the review panel to determine awardees. The other regional partners include Arts Davidson County, Davie County Arts Council, High Point Arts Council, and Randolph Arts Guild. All partners will work together to provide marketing and outreach and host applicant workshops and provide assistance to applicants.


Artists in all disciplines are eligible to apply for grants to support their professional and artistic development through a partnership of the North Carolina Arts Council and Arts Davidson County, Davie County Arts Council, The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County, High Point Arts Council, Randolph Arts Guild, and ArtsGreensboro.
