The City of Savannah still has funding available for the 2020 Weave-A-Dream investment program and is accepting applications for arts and culture projects through Nov. 1.
Weave-A-Dream is a project-based grant that supports innovative programming to strengthen, diversify and expand Savannah’s creative sector. Proposed projects should help reestablish or preserve vibrant neighborhoods or be cultural and art projects designed specifically for youth.
“This year has brought unique challenges to our city, and accessible art programming is as important as ever,” said Stuart Miller, director of Cultural Resources for the City of Savannah. “We look forward to supporting cultural initiatives that bring arts and cultural programming to our Savannah neighborhoods and youth.”
Applications are accepted year-round on a rolling basis, and the City of Savannah still has funding available for allocation in 2020. Those applying for this grant must complete their projects this year, and the proposed programming must happen in the Savannah city limits. Applicants may request up to $5,000 in matching funds. Additional application guidelines and program information can be found at savannahga.gov/arts.
Applicants are asked to contact the contract coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 912-651-6760 to set up an application account. The application deadline is Sunday, Nov. 1, at 5 p.m. Submitted proposals are reviewed and evaluated by members of the Cultural Affairs Commission, who are appointed through an application process by the Mayor and Aldermen.
The city accepts applications on a rolling basis each year, so organizations with projects taking place in 2021 are asked to wait until 2021 to apply.
