WESTPORT - The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks announces that Strategic Opportunity Stipends provides grants designed to help individual artists of all disciplines take advantage of specific, unique opportunities that will significantly benefit their work or career. These are $100-$600 grants for forthcoming opportunities (not necessarily projects) that are distinct from an artist's ongoing work.
The next deadline is Wednesday, January 27th, 2010 . This deadline is for opportunities occurring between March 1st, 2010 and June 30th, 2010.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old and a full-time resident for the past year of one of the participating New York State counties. Applicants cannot be enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate degree program at the time of application.
Applications are available from www.nyfa.org and can be submitted to Athena Roth at the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks, P.O. Box 187, Westport, NY 12993. Applications must be in the ACNA office by 5 p.m. on Jan. 27.
