Arts Council Seeking Applications for Duke Energy Regional Artist Project Grants

The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County is seeking applications for Duke Energy Regional Artist Project Grants which offer support to artists in a six-county region to help them further their professional development. Committed, gifted individual artists and collaborative groups in Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin counties are eligible to apply. Deadline for applications is Friday, September 23, at 5:00 p.m.

“We are looking for opportunities to make grants that support the careers of area artists at pivotal points in their professional lives. These grants always are diverse because the needs and disciplines of individual artists vary dramatically,” said Dara Silver, Grant Program Manager for The Arts Council.

Guidelines, applications, and information sessions are available online at In addition, Arts Council staff will hold an online information session on Tuesday, August 23, at 12:00 p.m. and an in-person information session at 6:00 p.m. on the same day in the Borden Hanes Conference Room, Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 N. Spruce Street. Details for the online information session will be posted on The Arts Council website.

The grants are sponsored by Duke Energy with support by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Last year, The Arts Council made a total of $25,000 in awards in this grant category to 11 individual artists, collaborations, or music groups.
