Grassroots Arts Grants
We’re thrilled to have granted nearly $200,000 over the past two decades to other nonprofits using the arts to do extraordinary work in Chatham County through annual Grassroots Arts Grants.
Artist Support Grants
Again this year, we are partnering with the fine folks at the NC Arts Council, United Arts of Raleigh & Wake County, and other local arts councils to bring the Artist Support Grant to Chatham County artists. This Artist Support Grant is open to artists living in Chatham, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Wake counties. We encourage diverse and nontraditional artists to apply for the grant.
Emerging Artist Grants
We partner with the fine folks at the Durham Arts Council to bring the Emerging Artist Grant opportunity to Chatham County artists. Funding opportunities for individual artists are rare—particularly in the performing arts—so this is pretty special.
During the pandemic, emergency funding for artists and arts-workers has been essential. For the second year in a row, CAC is offering a grant designed to help get Chatham County artists and arts-workers back to work by paying artists to make art–and to put the arts in the public sphere as we re-connect with one another in our public spaces.
