Call for arts and culture grant proposals

Beginning on June 1, 2018 the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board invites grant proposals for art, music, theater, and cultural heritage events or projects to take place in Georgetown between October 1, 2018 and March 30, 2019. Nonprofit organizations, schools, informal arts and culture organizations, and individual artists who are creating public art or an event open to the public are eligible to apply. The grant proposal form is found online through Submittable here. The deadline for grant proposals is midnight on Saturday, June 30, 2018. 

Special consideration will be given for events or projects that meet one or more of these criteria:

  • Offer free admission
  • Include outreach to populations that are traditionally underrepresented
  • Have a cultural tourism or economic impact (e.g., events that may attract people who also attend other arts & culture venues or events, stay overnight, shop, or dine in Georgetown)

Organizations or individuals that receive funding will be required to follow up by:

  • Recognizing the City of Georgetown Arts and Culture Board by name in their advertising and programs
  • Submitting a one-page report to the Arts and Culture Board no later than July 31, 2019, with a description of the use of grant funds and copies of event promotion materials

Organizations will be notified by email about funding decisions by July 31, 2018.
