The N.H. State Council on the Arts is now accepting Arts in Health Project Grant applications through May 22. Not-for-profit health care facilities, rehabilitation centers and centers serving needs of the elderly are encouraged to apply. At the same time, qualified artists interested in working at health care facilities through the State Arts Council’s programs are invited to apply to join the N.H. Arts in Health Artist Directory.
Grant requests may be made for $500 to $4,500; projects must take place between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016. At a minimum, grants must be matched on a one-to-one basis. In-kind contributions may comprise up to 50 percent of the required match.
The Arts in Health Artist Directory includes performing, literary, media and visual artists who are skilled in working in a range of health care facilities.
New this year, both applications may be submitted online.
Information about both the grant program and the artist directory are available at nh.gov/nharts. For further assistance, contact Catherine O’Brian at Catherine.R.OBrian@dcr.nh.gov or 271-0795.
