Small grants support the innovation, creativity and professional development of individual artists living in the Telluride region. The small grants program is generously funded by the Town of Telluride and administered by the Telluride Arts District. Funds support individual artists working in the visual, media, performing and literary arts. Artist projects may include (but are not limited to) the development, completion or presentation of new work; and professional development. Artists are required to share work with the public through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a simple written or photo documentation of the project, in print or online, in order to help disseminate the value of the arts and artists to our communities. An artist may apply for up to $2000 for an individual project or professional development. Telluride Arts will support this process through marketing and coordination where needed.

As part of the Small Grants program, artists are invited to apply for up to $300 to provide a free Artist-To-Artist workshop.  The goal is to help artists develop professional skills and expertise that advances their work. Workshops will be taught by artists for artists.

The deadline to apply is Monday, March 2nd by 5pm.  For more information and how to apply, please visit For more information, please contact the Telluride Arts District at 970-728-3930. We are here to help artists submit their best proposal. Please make an appointment to get more information on the grant making process.


The Telluride Arts District serves the region by sustaining, promoting and expanding the arts. The physical district, established in 2012, follows the boundaries of the Town of Telluride, and contains a remarkable concentration of arts and cultural activity. The Telluride Cultural Master Plan provides the roadmap for programs that enhance the arts within the district. Current priorities include providing resources for local artists, marketing Telluride as an arts destination, and securing space for the arts.
