Individual Artist Grants and Services Program - Investing in the Future of Ohio's Artists
Individual artists are making a difference in communities across Ohio every day. They illuminate community identity and help us understand and imagine our lives in new ways. Our lives are richer and more remarkable because of the contribution of artists to the social, physical, economic and spiritual fabric of our neighborhoods and towns. The presence of artists in a particular place is a strong indicator of cultural vitality. Businesses, new and old alike, need places where work and play come together in creative and dynamic ways. Artists living and working in a community affect the extent to which arts and culture are integrated into the schools and the number of non-profit arts organizations, theatres, art classes, galleries, and venues for live music in that community.

We will be accepting applications this year in the following disciplines: choreography, criticism, fiction, non-fiction, music composition, playwriting and poetry. You may submit only one application to one discipline area a year unless you also write arts criticism. In this case you may submit one arts criticism application and one to a different discipline, if the work is completely different. If you received an OAC Individual Excellence Award in FY2014 (the last year we had these same disciplines) you ARE eligible to apply at this deadline if you are applying with different work but within the required time-frame.
If you have questions about the program or application please contact program coordinator, Kathy Signorino, email@example.com or 614/728-6140 or program director, Ken Emerick, firstname.lastname@example.org or 614/728-4421.
