2011 Strengthening the Arts and Cultures Infrastructure
Support for the Field
Total Allocation: $90,000.00
In 2010, grants 8 grants were awarded to Native arts service organizations. Funding worked in support of operational and programming needs and included efforts in capacity building, the development or retention of the workforce; support for infrastructure systems, governance and board development, equipment and/or technical needs, the administration of programs, professional development training or services, improved outreach, and/or support for programming vital to the mission of the organization.
Support for these 8 grantees reflects NACF's strategy to regionally bolster services offered to Native artists and culture bearers. Five of the eight organizations offer grants for artists and cultural practices, half of them provide marketplace opportunities for Native artists, and all of the organizations provide some kind of professional development training in buidling arts leadership, forwarding artists careers, and promoting community development.
We want to thank the Rasmuson Foundation in Anchorage, Alaska for their generous support of our Alaskan grantee.
