2020 Weave-A-Dream Guidelines and Application

Weave-A-Dream (WAD) is a flexible project-based program that aims to encourage small and emerging organizations and creative individuals to propose specific, innovative programming—programming that strengthens, diversifies, and expands Savannah’s creative sector.

The Cultural Affairs Commission’s WAD Panel seeks proposals that reestablish and preserve vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods and/or present cultural and art projects designed specifically for youth. Projects should engage individuals who have limited access to creative programs and should reach communities across all Aldermanic districts.

Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel who consider the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy and plan for assessing the project’s success. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must provide matching funds as outlined in the Guidelines below. The maximum amount that can be requested is $5,000 (with a one-to-one match) and proposed projects must be produced within the City of Savannah’s corporate limits.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are due no later than November 1st, 2020 or until all available funding has been allocated.

Interested applicants should download the 2020 WAD Guidelines and Example Budget forms and contact the Contracts Coordinator with the name of your organization and project information. A link will be provided to access the electronic Application in the Neighborly System.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public events will be condition on current Federal, State, and Local regulations regarding public gatherings. Grant approval does not indicate that an event may occur if there are active regulations prohibiting public activities and gatherings.
