ARTS PANEL GRANT PROGRAM

The grant program strives to bring more, free programing available to the public at the Pawtucket Arts Festival. Since we want to make the month of September as special and celebratory of the arts in our city as possible, we are asking for applicants to submit artistic or musical performances to help to enhance the annual festival’s presence. Grants up to $ 1,000 are available (to support artistic performances, exhibitions, workshops and special events targeted to our diverse community and to bring visitors to the City).   

Grant awards are determined by the Pawtucket Arts Review Panel based on established criteria, including the project’s artistic merit, potential for cultural and community connections, and the project’s clarity and achievability. Emphasis is also placed on projects that are available at low or no cost to Pawtucket residents.  Successful applicants are reimbursed upon the completion of the project.
