The arts section of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History is offering a new e-mail service available through its office. The new service is designed to provide periodic e-mail messages with deadline dates for all its grants and regional information that may be of interest. In addition, the service will allow the arts section to send information and announcements about specific grants as well as resource advice to assist applicants.
Anyone interested in being placed on this arts database should send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org, including name, mailing address, position/discipline, organization, grants of specific interest to you or your organization, grants you have applied for in the past, and any additional pertinent information indicating your interest in the arts. E-mail addresses will not be shared with any other database service, including spam, mass marketing campaigns or other organizations.
Specific questions about grants and applications should continue to be directed to the individual grant coordinators: Barbie Anderson, grants coordinator; Debbie Rainey Haught, community arts coordinator; Gregg McAllister, arts in education and mini grant coordinator; Rose McDonough, cultural facilities and accessibility coordinator; and Jeff Pierson, individual arts coordinator.
For more information or to reach the arts section, call (304) 558-0240.
