Hampton Arts Management has recently launched an Arts Microgrant program in Tampa, FL. The Arts Microgrant provides small dollar funding (up to $500) for ambitious, creative, and innovative projects. Projects may be in any artistic medium but must have a component open to the public that takes place in Hillsborough or Pinellas County. In addition to funding, each grant recipient also receives additional services from Hampton Arts Management, including media management, press relations, logistics, venues, and anything else needed to make the project a sucess.
Applications are accepted on a rolling deadline on the 1st of each month.
All application materials are available online at http://www.thinksmalltothinkbig.org/grants/
I think this program can be a great resource for your students by providing them an opportunity to come to Tampa, get a little money, and make something cool happen.
I would appreciate if you could pass this information along to anyone whom you think can take advantage of it.
