Help us increase arts access & engagement locally!
For our end-of-year fundraising campaign, we are relaunching #TheArtofGiving, to help build capacity for our Arts Express! Grant Program which provides funding support to local artists, arts organizations, cultural groups and arts-based projects in San Benito County.
About the Arts Express! Grant Program
In 2017 the Arts Council launched the Arts Express! Grant Program to provide quick and accessible mini-grants to local artists and arts-based organizations in order to reduce barriers to arts funding and create economic opportunities within our local arts community.
Since its inception, Arts Express! has funded 21 projects in San Benito County, some of which include summer art and dance camps, after school arts programming, public art projects, and performing and visual art works.
A few of the previous grantees include Mr. O’s Academy for the Arts, El Teatro Campesino, Spring Grove School, San Benito Stage Company, Terra Cultura, and Anzar High School. In 2020, with your support, we are looking to ambitiously expand this program and increase funding opportunities to local artists and arts and cultural groups to help meet growing community need.
