COMMUNITY ARTS GRANTS
The Orange County Arts Council 2021-22 Community Arts Grants (the “Community Arts Grants”) are designed to encourage the growth of new arts and culture opportunities in Orange County. The Community Arts Grants will be administered by the Orange County Arts Council (the “Arts Council”) and funded through individual donations made to the Arts Council from donors and sponsors, including a generous gift from the Wesley-Krueger Family Foundation. Priority will be given to projects that focus on community engagement.
SACHS VISUAL PUBLIC ART GRANTS
This one time grant encourages the creation of visual public art works. Projects must have specific plans to be presented in public spaces in Orange County. Individual artists are encouraged to apply. Unlike the Community Arts Grants, these grants are eligible for applicants to apply to cover their own artist fees. This grant prioritizes artist-created installations.
STEP 1: READ GUIDELINES
This year, Orange County Arts Council offers two different grant categories. Applicants may select only one category to apply for, but may use the same application form included below.
In order to help increase the available funds for the Community Arts Grants, we are currently holding a campaign through our website. Each donor of $10 or more will receive an invitation to vote on the People’s choice category for the Community Arts Grants.
If you purchase an item through our Orange Made Goods marketplace, 10% of sales go towards these grants.
