Wisconsin Arts Board Announces Forty-Six Creative Communities Grant Awards

​​​​​​​​Madison, WI (July 1, 2024) – Forty-six (46) Wisconsin non-profit organizations will receive grants for collaborative community arts projects through the Wisconsin Arts Board’s FY2025 Creative Communities grant program. 

This statewide program provides grants of up to $6,000 for collaborative endeavors carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim within an applicant’s community. Creative Communities encourages arts education, cultural understanding, and community arts development in Wisconsin. It provides support for projects that are done with the community rather than just for the community, and that further the Arts Board’s goals in Arts Education, Folk and Traditional Arts, and Local Arts.​

Awards were recommended by panels of arts professionals, based on the following criteria: the project’s artistic, educational, and/or cultural value; the project’s organizational and financial management; the level of community involvement in the planning and implementation of the project; and the level of community involvement in the evaluation and documentation of the project. At its May quarterly​ board meeting, the Arts Board approved the 46 grant award recommendations​.​

​The Wisconsin Arts Board congratulates these recipients and recognizes their outstanding contributions to the creative life of Wisconsin.

​​​​The Creative Communities Program is supported with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. To learn more about the program, visit https://artsboard.wisconsin.gov/Pages/Communi​ty/CCP.aspx.​​​
