Tuning Up: S.C. Arts Alliance job extension + cross-sector grants + jazz collab

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…

A big arts job posting gets an application extension and South Arts opening a grant opportunity for cross-sector work are the Friday morning headlines. Let’s go!

  • It wasn’t terribly long ago that The Hub shared news of the South Carolina Arts Alliance’s executive director search. The turnaround was tight, but we can share that it loosened up a touch. The new deadline to apply is Friday, June 17 at 5 p.m.
  • South Arts announced recently announced the opening of a new cycle for artist or arts org cross-sector impact grants that harness the power of collaboration with a non-arts partner. Grants of up to $15,000 are available. Here’s a snippet: Cross-Sector Impact Grants are open to all art forms, for partnership projects taking place in South Arts’ nine-state region. For FY23, eligible projects will continue to feature ‘Arts & …’ collaborations, for example, arts and the military, arts and equity, arts and aging, arts and community revitalization. The projects must take place between Jan. 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024. The deadline to submit a Letter of Interest is Aug. 1, 2022.”

Speaking of collaborations, we thought this was cool: SCAC operating support grantees Charleston Jazz and the Gibbes Museum of Art are teaming up to present a three-concert “Art of Jazz” summer concert series at the Gibbes. Concert dates are June 22, July 20, and Aug. 24 and the concerts begin at 6 p.m. which gets you out in time to enjoy one of America’s great dining scenes in one of its great cities. Poor you!
