In 2016, the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs established the Individual Artist Grant Program. These 15 grants are intended to provide financial assistance to the City of St. Petersburg resident artists for specific projects. The program is designed to support the public engagement of individual work/projects in the Visual Arts, Craft Arts, Dance, Music, Theater, or Literature.
Applicants must show commitment to the art form through education, training, or professional experience, and must show evidence of exhibition, public performance, or being published during the past two years.
This year’s grant recipients include eight visual artists, three musicians, three writers, one dance, and one circus performer!
