Deadline extended — Letters of intent due Jan. 4 for Artists’ Ventures Initiative grants
Letters of intent due Jan. 4, 2016
The South Carolina Arts Commission invites artists to apply for the next round of S.C. Artists’ Ventures Initiative grants. AVI grants encourage and enable the creation of new artist-driven, arts-based business ventures that will provide career satisfaction and sustainability for S.C. artists.
S.C. artists (individuals and collaboratives) may use AVI funding to help launch a new venture or significantly alter an existing venture. A one-time project/single purchase may be awarded up to $3,500. An ongoing business venture may be awarded up to $5,000.
The AVI grant program is a two-part process, with letters of intent due Jan. 4, 2016. Selected applicants will be invited to develop a full grant proposal.
