Community Arts grants constitute the majority of DEC re-grant activity. These grants provide support for arts and cultural projects to community-based organizations, groups, collectives or artists. Community Arts Grant support enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in communities and neighborhoods where they live and operate.
Creative Learning grants support the role that local cultural organizations and/or individual artists play in engaging K-12 public school students, students in After-School programs, and students of all ages in Community-based Centers in rich artistic learning experiences. Arts Education funds are directed to cultural organizations and/or artists working in partnership with public schools or organizations. Projects must take place in schools and center on the development and implementation of sequential, skills-based study that incorporates one or more art forms and includes a minimum of 3 hands-on learning sessions with students. After-school and community-based learning place the emphasis on the depth and quality of the creative process through which participants learn through or about the arts. Projects must focus on the exploration of art and the artistic process.
Individual Artist grant opportunity represents a “live & work” investment in local artists. An essential element of this funding is the inclusion of the community artist’s project and a reflection of community life, culture, and/or engage local communities. Grants awarded to applicants in the Individual Artist Category are viewed as a partnership between the applicant artist, the Roxbury Arts Group, and the benefiting community members. Due to this fact, all applicants to the Individual Artist Category must contact the Roxbury Arts Group directly at 607.326.7908.
