Grassroots Arts Program
The Grassroots Arts Program (GAP) provides per capita-based funding for arts programming to all 100 counties across North Carolina ensuring opportunities for citizens to experience the arts in their own communities. Activities include festivals, concerts, dance and theater productions, artist-in-schools programs, galleries, Native American powwows, art classes and African drumming circles.
The GAP funding is primarily distributed through a network of Designated County Partners, Provisional County Partners or Regional Arts Partners in those cases where there is not a local organization. Arts councils are evaluated every three years to ensure GAP funds are spent effectively in local communities.
An exciting set of pre-designed arts programs are available through the Grassroots on Hand program using GAP funds, making it easier for communities to offer quality arts programming.
