Area arts organizations are invited to submit requests for funding to the Purcellville Arts Council by March 17. The council expects to have $10,000 available to support arts activities that take place in Purcellville between July 1 and June 30, 2018.
The town will apply for $5,000 of state funding through the Virginia Commission for the Arts’ Local Government Challenge Grant Program, and match that number in local funds.
Interested arts organizations should submit a request letter to the Purcellville Arts Council, outlining the amount requested, the arts activity that the funding will support and the audience that will be served, along with a description of the organization. Letters are due by 5 p.m. Friday, March 17 and should be addressed to the Purcellville Arts Council, Attn: Local Government Challenge Grant, and can be mailed to Town Hall, 221 S. Nursery Ave, Purcellville, VA 20132, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at Town Hall.
The Arts Council will review the funding requests and then make recommendations to Town Council at its March 28 meeting.
