City seeks apps for Cultural Expansion

Thursday, April 30, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The Cultural Arts Division of the city’s Economic Development Department is now accepting applications for the Cultural Expansion funding program. With a goal of strengthening the organizational marketing capacity and audience development of creative, culturally based organizations, officials say the Cultural Expansion Program was borne from the need to increase visibility for minority and traditionally underserved arts organizations. To be eligible for funding, applicants must have an IRS 501(c) designation and be a culturally based arts organization in Austin. Three applicant workshops have been scheduled in May:

  • May 2, 11 a.m.-noon, at the Little Walnut Creek Branch Library;
  • May 6, noon-1 p.m., at the University Hills Branch Library; and
  • May 7, 6-7 p.m., at the Pleasant Hill Branch Library.

Interested applicants should visit the city’s website for program guidelines and eligibility. Deadline for applications is June 1.
