Performing artists invited to apply for RACCs 2014 fellowship award
The Regional Arts & Culture Council is now accepting applications from performing artists working in dance/movement, music and theatre for RACCs annual artist fellowship award. Applications are now available online at racc.org/grantsonline.
Since 1999, the RACC fellowship award has honored and supported uniquely talented local artists who contribute to the community in very meaningful ways. This year, RACC intends to return to making two awards, with each artist receiving a cash award of $20,000.
RACC rotates the recognition among four disciplines every year performing artists, visual artists, literary artists and media artists.
Past performing arts fellows have included Mary Oslund and Obo Addy (1999), Tomas Svoboda and Keith Scales (2002), Thara Memory (2005), and Robin Lane (2010).
Guidelines can be downloaded from the RACC website, and all applications must be submitted online at racc.org/grantsonline. To be considered, applicants must submit an Intent to Apply form electronically no later than 5 p.m. June 18. Applicants are then required to finalize and submit their online application, and upload all supplementary materials electronically through the RACC GrantsOnline system by 5 p.m. June 25.
