The application period for the ACT II Artist Grant is now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied and congratulations to our new grantees!

Application period: May 7, 2018 through June 11, 2018 (11:59pm EST)

The Pinellas Community Foundation ACT II Artist Grant seeks to assist in the recognition and support of artists aged 60+ who embody the practice of aging in place and, through their creative work, inspire other artists and art lovers and help to make Pinellas County a vibrant arts and cultural destination.

Through a partnership with Creative Pinellas, the Pinellas Community Foundation is offering four (4) grants of $2,000 each for a total of $8,000. The focus of the grant funding will be toward the creation of original works of art that explore the concept of aging: emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Artwork created as part of the ACT II Grant does not have to be representational; it can be an abstract, experimental, or theoretical concept. Work created during the grant period will be exhibited and/or performed at the Pinellas Community Foundation Annual Meeting in February 2019.

Applications will be accepted in the following disciplines:

  • Choreography
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Media Arts
  • Music Composition
  • Theater/Musical Theater
  • Visual Art

ACT II Artist Grant recipients are also eligible to receive professional support from Creative Pinellas through the Arts Business Incubator, its programs and workshops. In addition, all applicants will have access to free, or discounted, tuition to development programs and seminars hosted by Creative Pinellas and its program partners.

Accepting applications starting May 7 – June 11, 2018 (11:59pm EST)
