Weave-A-Dream Projecting Funding Available for Innovative, Cultural Arts Program

The City of Savannah’s Weave-A-Dream (WAD) Panel has issued a call for proposals for its 2016 Weave-A-Dream Cultural & Arts Projects initiative. Applications will be accepted through the calendar year, while funds are available. Programs are to be completed prior to December 31, 2016. The application must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the start date of the project; the last date an application can be submitted is October 21, 2016.

Project funding is available up to $2,000 for specific and innovative arts, cultural, or heritage projects or presentations that have a measurable, quantifiable benefit to Savannah’s diverse populations. The Weave-A-Dream committee seeks proposals that actively involve youth, seniors, and those who have limited access to arts based programs in Savannah. A priority of the WAD funding program is that organizations reach neighborhood communities encompassing all city districts.

To be eligible for consideration, an organization must be a non-profit, 501c3, head-quartered in Savannah’s corporate limits. Proposed programs must also be produced within the City’s corporate limits. No individual artist applications will be accepted. 

Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel and funding is awarded by a competitive funding process that considers the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy and plan for assessing the project’s success. Successful programs will identify a community need and utilize arts and heritage activities as the primary strategy to fulfill that need.
