About DAC MicroGrants
THE 2016 MICROGRANTS APPLICATION CYCLE HAS CLOSED
Thank you for your interest in DAC MicroGrants. Our 2016 grants have been awarded (see below). Please download the 2016 Call to Artists for information about the program. The 2017 application cycle will open in early January 2017. For questions, please contact Cristie Scott, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DAC MicroGrants was established in 2014 as a funding opportunity for artists living and creating in Southwestern Colorado and rural 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, MicroGrants distributes ten (10) grants totaling $5000 to our regional artists, serving as a catalyst to further their work while living 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 each year.
DAC seeks to engage local artists and deepen artistic diversity within Durango and our surrounding communities. No matter how ambitious or humble the proposal, MicroGrants aims to support innovation, creative development and maintain momentum in artistic careers. Read more about MicroGrants in the news.
DAC MicroGrants is made possible by numerous individual donors and the Pritzker Traubert Family Foundation.
