Small Grants for New Ideas
Funding for individual artist’s projects and professional development.
Small grants + fellowships support the innovation, creativity and professional development of individual artists living in the Telluride region. The small grants program provides funding for individual artists working in the visual, media, performing and literary arts. Artist projects may include (but are not limited to) the development, completion or presentation of new work; and professional development. Artists are required to share work with the public through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a simple written or photo documentation of the project, in print or online, in order to help disseminate the value of the arts and artists to our communities. Telluride Arts will support this process through marketing and coordination where needed.
