The Telluride Arts Small Grants program is a long-term investment in developing the expertise of local artists. Funds support individual artists working in the visual, media, performing and literary arts. Artist projects may include (but are not limited to) the development, creation, completion or presentation of new work and professional development such as conferences, workshops, residencies and classes.

Since its inception in 1999, the Small Grants program has supported over 300 artists, allowing them to deepen their skills and share their work. Artists are required to share work with the Telluride community through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a written or photo documentation of the project, in print or online. Telluride Arts will provide additional support through our spaces, marketing, and coordination, as possible.

In addition to Small Grants, Telluride Arts also awards Amplify Grants, Flash Grants, and Art + Architecture Grants and new this year are Augment Grants!

Augment is a local nonprofit and umbrella program of Telluride Arts that exists to foster and support the music culture in the greater Telluride region. This year Augment is teaming up with Telluride Arts to offer additional Small Grants earmarked for local musicians. Augment will be offering up to $2000 to each recipient. Those funds can be used for anything from a new album project or music video to attending a music camp to help develop skills. The only caveat is that the funds and the project they support have to benefit the Telluride community in some way.

A peer panel of artists and arts professionals who represent multiple creative disciplines review each application, then gather to evaluate the proposals and carefully award funding that should prove meaningful to the artist’s personal advancement. The quality and quantity of proposals has increased each year—a testament to the strong creativity that continues to thrive in Telluride’s box canyon.
