Kent Arts Commission Offers Funding for 2006 Community Art Projects
KENT, WA – September 6, 2005 - The City of Kent Arts Commission announces funding opportunities for local community arts through its 2006 Community Arts Support Program (CASP). Last year 6 organizations received awards totaling $8,400. This money funded a diverse range of music, theatre, and art programs.
The program provides financial support for arts projects by arts and cultural organizations, community service groups, and individual artists. Funding is intended to support artists and organizations that provide high quality arts experiences for Kent residents. Only programs taking place in Kent or the Kent School District service area are eligible for funding. Through the Community Arts Support Program, the Kent Arts Commission seeks to provide opportunities for innovation and for the development of unique services outside the scope of the Commission’s existing programming.
Applications are now available and the application deadline is October 7. For more information or to request an application, please call Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services at (253) 856-5050 or go to www.ci.kent.wa.us/arts.
