What is the North Carolina Artist Support Grant?
The North Carolina Arts Council launched the Artist Support Grant last year to support individual artists during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program builds upon the former Regional Artist Project Grant Program, funding the professional and artistic development of emerging or established artists so they can create work, improve their business operations, or bring their work to new audiences. The Artist Support Grant program is a partnership of the North Carolina Arts Council and the state’s extensive local arts council network. The Arts Council of Wilmington & New Hanover administers the grant for New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender, Columbus, and Bladen counties.
