City of Alexandria Commission for the Arts Schedules Grants Program Workshops
The Alexandria Commission for the Arts will conduct two grant workshops Monday, September 20 and Wednesday, October 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Durant Arts Center, 1605 Cameron St. The workshops will provide information about the Commission’s annual grant program, which provides funding to non-profit arts organizations for various arts programs, and instructions for the on-line application process. All applicants including past grant recipients are encouraged to attend one of the grant workshops.
The goals of the Commission’s grant program are to encourage artistic excellence in the City; assist Alexandria-based arts organizations in improving their financial, administrative, and management capabilities; and provide individual artists with opportunities to create, perform, and present their works.
