The local community will enjoy many new and fun cultural events this year thanks to funding provided by the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture & the City of Grand Junction. Twenty non-profit organizations received funding ranging from $1000 – $3600. Organizations will bring cultural projects from festivals, dance and theatrical performances, art camp, art exhibits, and musical concerts to Grand Junction. The community will benefit from a broad diversity of projects that will reach a wide variety of interests and ages.
Many of these events are free or at a minimal cost to the public thanks to this grant. Organizations are anticipating $564,000 in revenue, paying 1220 artists and projecting attendance/listening audience to be over a million people. Most of these organizations rely on volunteers to provide these projects for the community and this year it’s projected individuals will donate over 22,000 hours of volunteerism. The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture congratulates the awardees and looks forward to an engaging 2019 season of arts and culture in Grand Junction.
The grant program is open to any Colorado non-profit agency for arts and cultural projects that are held in Grand Junction. The process opens in December and closes in February annually.
