Expanding Arts Opportunities
Everyone should feel welcome at an art museum, theater, sculpture garden, or concert. We work to expand access to the arts and cultural activities for all people regardless of age, ability, income, race, ethnicity, geography, sexual orientation, or religion.
Arts Impact Grants support nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools in their efforts to add vibrancy to Vermont communities by providing equal and abundant access to the arts.
Artists in Schools Grants enable schools to hire and collaborate with teaching artists in the classroom.
Through the Arts Partnership Program, the Council engages with arts organizations that understand the needs of their own communities and address those needs through the arts.
Cultural Facilities Grants help Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities enhance, create, or expand the capacity of an existing building to provide cultural activities for the public.
Head Start Arts Integration Grants offer the proven benefits of arts-integrated learning to Vermont’s most vulnerable students, and strengthen the quality of support for teachers and students in Head Start programs across the state.
