Now accepting applications for the Emerging Artist Grant!
“Rising, coming into prominence”
Grants will be awarded to Pinellas County artists for original work in the disciplines of choreography, literature, media arts, music composition, theatre/musical theatre, visual arts and interdisciplinary arts.
Emerging Artist Grants aim to help artists that are early in their career but are quickly growing as artists and find themselves at an important moment when these awards would have an especially big impact on their development. Emerging artists are defined as those who demonstrate excellence in their work, are widely recognized by their peers and the community at large for their work, and still have some ground to cover on their path to recognition as professional artists.
Up to ten artists are selected each year to receive:
- Funding of $2,000 each
- A professional artist mentor
- An exhibition / performance event at the end of the grant period where artists can display or perform their work.
