The Black Belt Community Foundation is accepting applications for its sixth round of Black Belt Arts Initiative grants. Community organizations based in and serving BBCF’s 12-county service area are eligible to apply.
The Black Belt Arts Initiative (BBAI) is a project of the Black Belt Community Foundation in collaboration with the Cultural & Youth Committee of the Black Belt Action Commission and the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
The goals of BBAI are to promote arts awareness, arts appreciation, and creativity throughout the Black Belt. Grant applicants are invited to submit proposals that portray similar objectives through the areas of visual arts, performing arts, literary arts, traditional arts, or cultural history.
The BBAI focuses on community arts projects and provides resources for projects that encourage and celebrate arts and culture among local residents.
Upcoming workshops will address the requirements of application, how to apply, and the BBCF grants review process. Applications will be available at the workshops or from the BBCF office. The deadline for application is March 1, 2011. First time applicants are required to contact the BBCF Office at 334.874.1126 to discuss the proposed project with a staff member prior to submitting an application. All applicants are encouraged to do so.
