South Arts Cross-Sector Impact Grants Opening June 17

From South Arts –

South Arts’ Cross-Sector Impact Grant program aims to connect the arts community with other sectors to address challenges and strengths within our changing communities.

South Arts recognizes that as our communities continue to change, the arts play an incomparable role in addressing many of our communal and individual challenges and strengths. Further, the value of partnership and working together across sectors brings new opportunities, increased effectiveness, and greater depth to our collective work. Through this program, South Arts seeks to provide significant support to projects developed by partners that harness the power of “Arts & …” (these are projects at the intersection of arts and other sectors).

Cross-Sector Impact Grants are open to all art forms for partnership projects taking place in South Arts’ nine-state region. Eligible projects must focus on the “Arts & …” theme – for example, arts and the military, arts and equity, arts and aging, arts and community revitalization. Applicants may be organizations, units of government, higher educational institutions, or artists.
