The Community Foundation received funding from The James Irvine Foundation for the Arts Regranting Program/ Inland Empire (ARPIE).
The regranting funds are for small arts organizations in the Inland Empire to experiment with new approaches to arts engagement. Grants are intended as risk-capital for very small arts organizations, agencies, art collectives and groups to pilot projects that focus on:
1) reaching low-income and/or ethnically diverse populations that have been traditionally underserved by nonprofit arts organizations
2) offering active engagement in the arts in which participants are making or practicing art, and/or
3) using nontraditional arts venues such as churches, store fronts and shopping malls, or open lots and other spaces not typically designated for arts use that are easily accessible and familiar to the public..
View the guidelines to see if your arts organization is a good candidate for an ARPIE grant.
Maximum request is $10,000. The deadline is August 1, 2014.
