Telluride Arts: Small Grant Apps Due 12/15

Telluride Arts‘ Small Grant program supports the innovation, creativity and professional development of individual artists living or working in Telluride. For more information or to apply, go here.


Telluride Arts is currently accepting applications for the 2018 Small Grants for Artists program. Funding is available up to $2,000 for individual artist projects; group projects; professional development; and artist-to-artist workshops.

The deadline to apply is midnight, December 15, 2017. The timeline has changed over past years: projects begin February 1, 2018 and end December 1, 2018.

Funds support artists working across any discipline, and everyone is encouraged to apply whether they have submitted previously or this year is their first time.

Projects may include, but are not limited to, the creation, completion or presentation of new work and professional development such as conferences, workshops, residencies, and classes.

Telluride Arts suggests anyone wanting to learn more about the program should contact the staff.

Artists applying for a grant are required to share their work with the public through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a simple written or photo documentation of the project, in print or online. Telluride Arts will support this process through marketing and coordination.

“For over 15 years, our Small Grants program has proven to be a powerful engine to advance the work of our local artists. Grants pay for hard costs, and have been leveraged to attract funding from outside of the region to support significant projects, including award-winning films, cutting-edge theatre, music recordings, written publications, fine art exhibitions, and a dance company to name a few,” said Kate Jones, Telluride Arts’ Director

Telluride Arts Small Grants program is a long-term investment to develop the expertise of local artists. The initiative is funded by the Town of Telluride and administered by Telluride Arts.

Grant proposals are reviewed each year by a panel of five different artists who represent a cross-section of disciplines. The committee changes each year ensuring a fresh perspective and equal opportunity for those applying.

Again, small grants are designed support the innovation, creativity and professional development of individual artists living or working in Telluride.
