Berryville, VA (February 3, 2022) – The Berryville Town Council invites local stand-alone arts organizations to submit requests for funding for proposed arts activities that will take place in the Town of Berryville during Fiscal Year 2022 (July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023).
The Town of Berryville will apply for $4,500 of state funding from the Virginia Commission for the Arts’ Creative Communities Partnership Grant program, and match it with $4,500 of local funds. The total amount of $9,000 will be distributed to stand-alone independent arts organizations to support arts activities within the Town.
Interested arts organizations should submit an application (Creative Communities Partnership Grant Participant Grant Application) to Community Development Director Christy Dunkle (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 25, 2022, to be considered.
Applicants must be an organization whose primary purpose is the arts (production, presentation or support of dance, literary arts, media arts, music, theater, or visual or related arts) and that are incorporated in Virginia. They must also have their headquarters and home seasons, or activities equivalent to a home season, within the state. Funding cannot be provided for payment to performers for specific performances.
The Berryville Town Council Community Development Committee will review all funding requests and make a recommendation on the distribution of the funding to the Berryville Town Council for approval. The Town Council will make the final determination, dependent on receipt of the matching state funds. The deadline for the Town to apply for the Creative Communities Partnership Grant is April 1, 2022. Funding will be provided to selected arts organizations after July 1, 2022.
