Who's it for?
WNC artists who are ready to advance their professional careers.
What problem does it solve?
Funding support can be a challenge for artists projects.
How does it help?
RAPG helps provide funding to aid in launching an artist's career.
RAPG selection criteria include artistic merit, the potential of the project to contribute to the artist’s professional growth, and the feasibility of the project itself. The Asheville Area Arts Council, Toe River Arts Council, and the Madison County Arts Council are pleased to announce the 2018/2019 Regional Artist Project Grant application is open. The Regional Artist Project Grants awarded range from $400 – $1,200. Full or partial cash match is not required but is preferred. Artists currently enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate program and artists who have received a Regional Artist Project Grant within the last two funding cycles are not eligible. Each year the three arts councils hold grant workshops. If you would like to attend or have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828.258.0710.
