Arts Council Announces Grassroots Arts Funding
The Union County Community Arts Council has announced that 6 Union County arts groups have received funding from the council’s Grassroots Arts Grant program. Funds have been made available to non-profit, tax-exempt organizations whose purpose is to promote and develop diverse cultural arts programming in Union County.
A program of the NC Department of Cultural Resources Grassroots Arts Program, grants have been offered by the Union County Community Arts Council since 1987. Grant applications are available in the spring of each year.
A panel of board and community members reviewed all applications and made a recommendation to the board of directors. The board awarded grants to the Union Symphony Society, Union County Youth Ballet, Union County Playmakers, Waxhaw Junior Art League, Dance Chance and the Artists Music Guild. The total amount funded was $30,000.
“These grants are key to the continued accomplishments of these deserving arts groups. It is important that the arts council support the arts throughout our area by providing funding and other resources so that Union County’s quality of life can continue to thrive”, said Barbara Faulk, executive director.
