The Chenango Arts Council is pleased to announce continued funding for arts-in-education initiatives in Broome, Chenango and Otsego counties. Funding is available for grants up to $5,000 through the 2014 Decentralization (DEC) Arts Education (AE) Program.
In addition to this funding, an additional $10,000 for the 2014 Broome DEC Program has been provided by the Stewart W. and Willma C. Hoyt Foundation. These funds are available to Broome DEC applicants who were not able to be fully funded through the regular DEC process, and who are not currently receiving Hoyt funds.
AE grants support the role that local cultural organizations and/or individual artists play in engaging K-12 public school students in rich artistic learning experiences. AE funds are designed to support new or first time arts education projects in K-12 school settings. Re-grant funds are directed to cultural organizations and/or artists to work in partnership with public schools to utilize each other’s resources. Projects must focus on the exploration of art and the artistic process. Projects must take place in school and center on the development and implementation of sequential, skills-based study that incorporates one or more art forms and includes a minimum of three hands-on learning sessions with a core group of students. Schools and teachers may not apply directly for AE funds.
The deadline for AE grant application is December 11, 2013, 5pm. Opportunities are for projects through December 31, 2014. View the Grant Forms link for the current AE guidelines and application form, or send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy. Notification of intent to apply is required.
Arts Council staff is available for assistance. Nominations for grant review panelists are accepted on an on-going basis. Call 336-2787/ARTS for more information!
The Broome, Chenango & Otsego Decentralization (DEC) Program is administered by the Chenango Arts Council, and is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature. Additional support provided by the Stewart W. & Willma C. Hoyt Foundation.
