Community Arts Grant Program: Introductory Zoom Info Session

October 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The City of Burbank Parks and Recreation Department and the Burbank Cultural Arts Commission are launching a pilot arts grant program to support local artists and arts organizations and to engage Burbank residents with diverse and outstanding cultural arts projects. Feedback from first-year participants will inform the development of future arts funding programs for the city.

About the Grants
Grants from $1,000 – $5,000 are available for visual and performing arts projects that encourage arts participation and experiences for all members of the community. We encourage applications and projects that:

Educate, entertain and inspire participants.
Build awareness and appreciation for the art form.
Meet community needs and identify target audiences.
Reflect the rich cultural diversity of the Burbank community.

Individual professional artists and non-profit arts organizations based in Los Angeles County and working in the visual arts and performing arts are invited to apply. Proposed projects must be completed in Burbank and directly serve Burbank residents, businesses, and visitors. Artists/organizations currently based in Burbank will take priority (see criteria).

Applications are due December 5, 2023, no later than 5PM for the project period of March 1, 2024 – December 31, 2024.
