Pawtucket Arts Review Panel Announces New Round of Grants

Grants Support Rhode Island Artists and Nonprofits for Pawtucket-Based Programming

PAWTUCKET– The City of Pawtucket is proud to announce the availability of project-based arts grants to support and expand cultural activities within the City. The Pawtucket Arts Review Panel makes grant funds available statewide to artists and nonprofit organizations for Pawtucket-based programing that enriches the community. These grants help to ensure that artistic performances, exhibitions, workshops, and special events are made available to a diverse range of Pawtucket residents and visitors. 

The Arts Review Panel requests that all applicants align their proposed project with the Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival scheduled for August-September, 2017. Applicants are also encouraged to highlight how their project or performance will enhance the festival as an inclusionary celebration of culture in Pawtucket. 

Applications, due March 31, 2017, are available on the City of Pawtucket’s arts page: www.pawtucketri.com/arts and at the Planning & Redevelopment Office (City Hall, 137 Roosevelt Avenue).

Grant awards are determined by the Pawtucket Arts Review Panel based on established criteria, including the project’s artistic merit, potential for cultural and community connections, and the project’s clarity and achievability. Emphasis is also placed on projects that are available at low or no cost to Pawtucket residents. Successful applicants are reimbursed upon the completion of the project.                  

For information about Pawtucket Arts Review Panel grants, please contact Jay Rosa, Planning Department, jrosa@pawtucketri.com or 401.728.0500, ext. 450.
