Arts Council offering grantsBy Carrie Golus
UChicagoArts, a grants program established by the new Arts Planning Council, will award its first round of grants in February. The grants, which range from $1,500 to $15,000, can be used for the creation and presentation of visual or performing arts on campus or for programs that increase artistic collaboration among student groups, academic departments and cultural organizations.
The grants are available to University organizations, departments, faculty members, student organizations, and residence halls or houses.
Individual students who want to apply will need to find a partner organization; Heidi Coleman, Director of University Theater, will assist students with this process.
The first deadline for applications is Wednesday, Jan. 23, with notification on Friday, Feb. 8. The next deadline will be Wednesday, Feb. 20, with notification on Friday, March 8.
