Grants and Programs

The Arts Council is committed to building a Vermont where art, culture, and creativity are at the heart of our communities. Engagement with the arts transforms individual lives, connects people more deeply to each other, energizes the economy, and sustains the vibrant cultural landscape that makes Vermont a great place to live.


The Council frames grantmaking and services we provide to artistsorganizations, and schools with intentional priorities. A naming of recent grantees reflects this.


The Council aims also to highlight some of the interesting and diverse work done in our state through presenting annual Arts Awards, a sculpture garden, and our Spotlight Gallery.
