Funds from Telluride Arts’ Small Grants Program support artists working across any discipline and everyone is encouraged to apply even those who have submitted previously. Artist projects can include, but are not limited to, the creation, completion or presentation of new work or professional development such as conferences, workshops, residencies, and classes. Telluride Arts encourages anyone wishing to learn more about the program to contact the staff.

Artists applying for a grant will be required to share their work with the public through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a simple written or photo documentation of the project, in print, online or both. Telluride Arts will support this process through marketing and coordination.

“For over 15 years, the Small Grants program has been a powerful engine to advance the work of our local artists. The grants pay for hard costs and have been leveraged to attract funding from outside the Telluride region to support significant projects, including an award-winning film, cutting-edge theatre, music recordings, written publications, fine art exhibitions, and a dance company, to name a few,” said Kate Jones, executive director, Telluride Arts.

The Telluride Arts Small Grants program is a long-term investment to develop the expertise of local artists funded by the Town of Telluride and administered by Telluride Arts. Grant proposals are reviewed each year by a panel of five different artists. The committee changes each year to ensure a fresh perspective and equal opportunity for those applying. Small grants support the innovation, creativity, and professional development of individual artists living or working in Telluride.
