Thank you for your interest in DAC MicroGrants. Please download the 2016 Call to Artists for information about the program. The 2017 application cycle will open in November/December. For questions, please contact Cristie Scott, Executive Director at email@example.com.
Established by DAC Board Members in 2014, MicroGrants is a funding opportunity for artists in Southwestern Colorado and select counties of Northern New Mexico. Understanding that a financial barrier is oftentimes all that stands in the way of an artists’ next critical step in their career, each year MicroGrants distributes ten (10) grants totaling $5000 to our regional artists, serving as a catalyst to further their work while living and creating in our rural Southwestern communities. This opportunity is open to DAC members as well as non-members. In an effort to decentralize visual authority and support a diplomatic review process, DAC engages local community members to evaluate applications and award MicroGrants.
No matter how ambitious or humble the proposal, MicroGrants aims to support innovation, creative development and maintain momentum in artistic careers. DAC seeks to engage local artists and deepen artistic diversity within Durango and the surrounding communities. Read more about MicroGrants in the news.
DAC acknowledges with sincere appreciation the individuals and organizations who support MicroGrants.
