The City of Tacoma is now accepting Arts Projects funding applications from eligible organizations producing publicly accessible arts programming in Tacoma in 2012. Arts Projects funding ranges from $1,000 to $5,000 and is used to support community projects that focus on the arts. The application deadline is Nov. 28, 2011. Applicants are encouraged to attend a free workshop, which explains and addresses questions about the process. The workshop will be held Nov. 1 from 12 p.m. 1:30 p.m. at the Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St., Room 1444. Past funding has supported arts components of festivals, dance and musical performances, arts workshops, exhibit programs, performing arts series and literary events. Funded events must take place within the 2012 calendar year. Eligibility extends to private non-profit agencies with a 501(c) designation; organized groups of community volunteers (such as a business district or neighborhood council with an advisory body, business license and organizational bank account); and for-profit businesses with an arts mission proposing a unique project designed specifically for public benefit that is not for profit. Applicants are required to have offices within Tacoma or if they have no office, a majority of the applicant’s activities must take place within the Tacoma city limits. Interested applicants should reference the guidelines for complete terms.
