The Cultural Council of Jackson Hole currently has all 2011-2012 Arts for All grant applications available. Arts and culture organizations, as well as individual artists, are eligible.
The Cultural Council’s Alissa Davies notes that the program “distributes social service tax dollars from the Town of Jackson and Teton County for arts education, producing and presenting opportunities, and public projects by individual artists that have a strong community benefit.” Up to $6,000 in monies can be awarded, but all grants must be matched 1:1 or more by applicants. Grants are cash.
Applications are due by June 1, 2011, and late applications will not be accepted. Any organizations receiving public funds from the Town of Jackson or Teton County are not eligible.
On April 27, 2011, Americans for the Arts hosted complimentary access to Transitioning into the Arts Sector in this Economy, a webinar for thoseseeking jobs in the arts sector. I believe these webinars are free to those already registered in the American for the Arts Job Bank, so check their home website for details.
Americans for the Arts notes that their webinars are “geared toward those who are new to the nonprofit arts field and want to learn how to make their resumes and cover letters stand out.” The non-profit says their jobs links will help job searchers “discover what executives are looking for when hiring for open positions, and what to highlight if you’re transitioning from another industry.” Question and answer sessions are offered after the webinars.
