Calling All Creatives! A Local Arts & Culture Grant Could Be Yours
You love to see it. Seems like every day there is a new incentive for creatives in Idaho to push themselves to new heights. Just last week the Idaho National Laboratory announced it's taking submissions for an Earth Day art contest. Now the Eagle Arts Commission is looking to hook locals up with grants to make their visions come true.
They are "calling all artists, musicians, cultural event organizers, and art educators in Eagle' to apply for grants which will be "awarded for events, activities, and educational opportunities that promote the arts in the Eagle community," according to a City of Eagle Instagram post. Get to thinking of what you want to bring to life and get your application in by May 31st.
The application is very detailed in its requirements, so I'd download it now to have a guide when you're putting together your proposal. With $10,000 total up for grabs, you're going to want to make sure your plan is clean and concise while delivering a wow factor. Keep in mind that the mission of the Eagle Arts Commission is “To enhance Eagle’s history and aesthetically enhance its sense of place by responsibly promoting the arts for the benefit of the greater Eagle Community.”
I'm not part of the commission making decisions or anything, but if I were, I'd lean toward funding some sort of cultural event for people to attend as we bounce back from the pandemic. Again, I have no say in the matter, but it's something to consider as you come up with ideas. Can't wait to see how it all turns out!
