Maybe you’ve been in the scenario above, maybe you’re in it now, or maybe you know someone in such a situation. If you live in Dane County (in Wisconsin) you can actually apply for a grant from the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission to potentially get some grant money to help you bring your grand artistic project to fruition.
In fact, I was recently asked to serve on the Music Grant Advisory panel to help review grant applications for music projects. I was flattered and honored to be asked to participate, and even more excited to learn about the process and help promote it to others who could really benefit from it. In hindsight, I wish I would have applied for a grant as I was compiling and completing my book, The Local Music Journey.
Anyway, I simply wanted to get you thinking about alternative sources of funding for your arts-related projects. And if you do not live in the Dane County area, I encourage you to check out your local cultural affairs and/or arts community to discover whether or not something similar exists in your area.
