The Vermont Arts Council is now accepting applications for its annual Creation Grant, which supports artists or artist groups in creating new work. Grant funds may be used to compensate artists for time spent creating new work, to purchase materials, or to rent equipment or space for the process.

This highly competitive program is reviewed by an independent panel of practicing artists and arts professionals. Both established and emerging artists are encouraged to apply.

Examples of fundable projects are:

A multimedia artist creating a new video series
A writer completing the first draft of a novel
A dance ensemble developing choreography for a new piece
A visual artist creating art for exhibition that explores new subjects and techniques
A musician composing music for a new album

New this year! Artist Spotlight! Applicants will have an option to have their proposal spotlighted on the Council’s website via an artist profile on CreativeGround. Deadline for applications is April 9th – for more information visit –
