SHARE ART GENESEE APPLICATION PORTAL NOW OPEN FOR 2020 APPLICATIONS.

DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1, 2019 11:59PM. AWARDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED JANUARY 7, 2020.

 

Greater Flint Arts Council is pleased to announce the 2020 Share Art Genesee Community Arts Grants program. GFAC will  award grants to established nonprofit and governmental arts and cultural institutions. The Share Art Genesee Program was established to provide grants to build the capacity of local arts organizations in reaching their potential in transforming our communities into vibrant, inclusive destinations with a unique sense of place.

 

Art can be a powerful way for multiple narratives to be heard, seen, and included in the knowledge and experiences of a community. The arts can build a sense of community through shared experiences, improved quality of our lives by providing outlets for the creativity inherent in all of us, and stimulate economic development by attracting visitors to our community.

 

This initiative puts your tax dollars to work as the program is funded in whole by Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment Millage funds. We thank the voters of Genesee County for recognizing the important role the arts play in the lives of all those who reside here and approving this grant program to support arts education, and cultural enrichment programs at nonprofit and governmental arts and cultural institutions in Genesee County.
