This fund grants to nonprofits, public agencies, and individual artists for the creation and presentation of “new artistic works.” Fields supported by these grants may include but are not limited to dance, theater, music, writing, sculpture, painting, photography, film, and graphic design. Awards were granted to the following organizations:

“This year’s grants focus on bringing people together by sharing the stories of those who are traditionally unheard, whether they are from remote rural regions or communities of color,” said Megan Conn, Program Officer for the Community Foundation. “These projects remind us of what we have in common, and we are excited to be a part of this storytelling culture in the North State.”
