DEFINITION OF "PROJECT"

A project is a specific art presentation, exhibit or creation of work that is fully executed within a specified timeline and contains a public component. A project possesses artistic quality, imaginative scope and vision, and is fully executed within a specified timeline. RACC offers funding for Project Grants in the following three categories:

Artistic Focus ~ project grants that demonstrate high artistic quality, innovation, creativity in programming and artist selection, and demonstrated ability by the artist or organization.

Community Participation ~ project grants that support cultural and arts programs and services that involve direct community participation. The project should impact a variety of citizens in the RACC service area by helping to provide them with a greater sense of self, family, community and place.

Arts-In-Schools (K-12) ~ project grants that encourage and enable members of the professional arts community to work in schools and create arts-rich learning environments. In an effort to better accomodate the needs of the education community, the availability of Project Grant Arts-In-Schools applications will coincide with the beginning of the school year.
