The West Virginia Commission on the Arts (WVCA) and the arts staff of the West
Virginia Division of Culture and History recently published the new Grants and
Services and Arts in Education Roster books and have scheduled workshops throughout
the state to explain new procedures now in force to arts administrators and
organizations, individual artists and arts educators.
The Grants and Services book describes all available services, resources and information for arts program planning. The Arts in Education Artist Roster provides resources for hiring teaching artists for arts in education programs.
In addition, the grant application forms also have changed and will be introduced at the workshops. The new forms will enable applicants to give a clearer description of the information necessary to improve their scoring and chance of funding from the WVCA. The new forms will be available online at www.wvculture.org by Dec. 15. An interactive CD with the new books and links to the application forms also will be available in December.
A complete list of workshop locations is attached.
For more information about the workshops, call Kelley French, secretary for the arts section, at (304) 558-0240, ext.155, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
