It’s Grants-Time again! Or at least, Grantwriting Workshop Time. Each year Queens Council on the Arts gives a series of workshops designed to provide in-depth instruction in both writing and budget preparation for grant proposals for the Queens Community Arts Fund (QCAF). QCAF provides non-profit organizations and individual artists with support through a competitive application process. Organizations must be Queens based, non profit, in existence for at least one year and provide cultural programming in Queens. Individual artists must live in Queens. In the coming weeks I will keep you apprised of the full workshop schedule, when it becomes available. For now, mark your calendars that on Thursday, September 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. there will be an application seminar for individual artists at sTudio 6 Gallery in Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area. Anyone applying for a grant must attend a seminar. Stay tuned.
Applications for Camp kidsmART have gone out. If you are interested and have not received an application, contact the RAA office. Teens interested in summer employment, please call the office.
