Last chance to learn how to claim arts grant dollars

March 15, 2010

What is a pressing issue in your community? Is this something you could solve with a strategy that involves arts and culture? The Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham is managing a community arts and civic engagement project in Birmingham and four other U.S. cities for the Kresge Foundation of Troy, Michigan. This is your chance to win a grant that can make a real difference in your neighborhood.

Join the last public training session on Tuesday, March 16, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Birmingham Branch of the public library, 2501 31st Avenue. Find out more on the Cultural Alliance website or call 458-1394 to register for a session.

Kresge believes that grassroots arts and cultural projects can be an effective tool to “unite communities, address pressing social issues and nourish our spirits in difficult times.” The Foundation encourages both individuals and groups to apply, including all types of arts and cultural professionals, neighborhood associations, service agencies, community development groups and arts and cultural organizations, among others. Over the next two years, Kresge is funding grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 for community arts projects that strive to address Birmingham’s pressing issues as determined by its citizens.

Application deadline is 3 p.m. on May 24. Come, learn more and submit your idea, as another great way to build a brighter future for our community.
