The Cultural Arts Grant is a competitive annual grant program designed to assist nonprofit organizations, volunteer managed organizations, and individuals seeking supplementary support. Proposals may encompass performing arts, visual media, literary arts, folk art, festivals, artist series, cultural programs of preK-12 schools, cultural traditions and public art programs.
Grant supported activities must culminate in tangible services presented to the community such as exhibitions, concerts, touring productions, festivals and/or publications. Public access to some aspect of the project is a requirement of the grant, however admission may be charged.
Additional consideration will be given to cultural projects that nourish artistic expression and development, enjoyment and understanding of arts and culture, and enhance the tourism industry through creative innovative planning and marketing.
The grant is appropriated by the City of Eau Claire and The Wisconsin Arts Board, and administered to qualify organizations by the Eau Claire Area Convention & Visitors Bureau based on review by the Tourism Grant Committee. Applicants must provide all of the information requested and be in compliance with all criteria. Incomplete applications will be returned.
