PORTLAND & ELLSWORTH—Small to medium-sized organizations involved in indigenous, ethnic, or rural arts programs or projects, particularly those that serve areas with limited access to arts activities, are encouraged to apply for funding from the Maine Community Foundation’s Expansion Arts Fund.
The deadline for applications is September 15, 2013. Apply online at www.mainecf.org.
Last year, the Expansion Arts Fund advisory committee awarded a total of $68,400. The nine grants ranged in size from $1,400 to the maximum award amount of $5,000. Among the organizations funded were Belfast Community Outreach in Education (BCOPE) of Belfast, for the Photo-Justice Project, empowering at-risk teens through photography and environmental health education; and the Friends of L.C. Bates Museum in Hinckley, to support the exhibit “The Gift of the Glacier: The Maine Landscape,” presenting 23 Maine artists’ visual interpretation of the landscape.
