From the press release desk today:

The City of Richmond and CultureWorks are pleased to announce a special cycle of the Arts and Cultural District Micro Grant Program. Arts and Cultural District Micro Grants provide funding assistance to district non-profits, small businesses and galleries located to reach visitors in the area during the 2015 UCI World Road Cycling Championships and major music and food festivals occurring between September 1 and November 1, 2015. Grants up to $1,000 are available to support arts related events, installations or programs in the Arts and Cultural District. Partnerships between entities located inside and outside the District are encouraged.

Previous recipients of an Arts and Cultural District Micro Grant are eligible and encouraged to apply for this special cycle. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Awards will be based upon creativity in design and approach, coinciding with major events occurring in/near to the District during the grant period, and need.

The application and full list of requirements are available at www.richmondcultureworks.org/services or contact Caron Sterling at CultureWorks, caron@richmondcultureworks.org or (804) 340.5280, ext. 1.

The City of Richmond and CultureWorks continue to collaborate with businesses, galleries, non-profits and artists to foster a vibrant arts community that generates enjoyment and civic pride for residents, stimulates the local economy, and develops an appreciation for diverse cultures and art forms.
