Tuning Up: CCC awards grants + GCCA workshops + more

Good morning! 

“Tuning Up” is a morning post series where The Hub delivers curated, quick-hit arts stories of interest to readers. Sometimes there will be one story, sometimes there will be several. Get in tune now, and have a masterpiece of a day. And now, in no particular order…

So we didn’t mean for this to be an Upstate Edition, but here we are.

  • Spartanburg’s Chapman Cultural Center awarded three individual artists a Community Grant for Quarter 3, 2018/2019, grants cycle! One of CCC’s major funding opportunities is through our quarterly Community Grants Program, which awards up to $5,000 per application and is open to both individual artists and non-profits/government agencies. See who was just awarded a grant this cycle.
  • TOMORROW is the deadline to register for Greenville Center for Creative Arts Winter Session I six-week classes (which start Monday, Jan. 7at GCCA). Click here to learn more and register by, again, TOMORROW. You’ll find instruction in a diverse range of mediums for every age and artistic skill level. Try something new in the New Year!
  • Going back up I-85 a few stops, Hub City Press announced Lauren Groff will judge the 2019 $10,000 C. Michael Curtis Short Story Book Prize.
