Funds are distributed by the three types of Grassroots Partners: Designated County Partners, Provisional County Partners, and Regional Arts Partners.
CENTRAL PIEDMONT REGIONAL ARTIST HUB GRANT
Funded by the North Carolina Arts Council and matched locally by participating counties (Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph, and Rockingham), the Central Piedmont Regional Artist Hub Program annually offers a limited number of grants to residents of these counties to further their development as professional artists at any stage in their career.
Eligible artistic disciplines are music (both classical and contemporary), dance, visual arts (painting, photography, sculpture and pottery), film/video, drama, and literature. Applicants must submit samples of their work and provide a narrative description of their career development plans. Grant recipients are required to sign a contract and file an evaluation at the completion of their project.
Art Instructors: We accept proposals from new instructors year round. We do various programs in schools annually and Summer camp classes that require artist teachers. Along with the proposal, new instructors must submit a resume, references, and examples of their own creative work. Proposals should also include a budget so that we may determine the overall feasibility of the class.
Artists: We post calls-to-artists on this page, as well. Please see the column on the right for more details.
Alamance Arts manages exhibits in the Captain White House and two offsite satellite galleries. If you would like your work to be considered for an exhibit at one of our gallery spaces, please click the exhibition request page listed in the column to the right.
