A new grant initiative, called Collaborative Arts Projects (CAP), has been established by the United Arts Council of Catawba County to encourage collaborations among cultural and/or community nonprofit organizations for arts, science and history projects reaching underserved audiences.
The Community Cultural Fund promotes cultural activities, throughout Catawba County enabling municipalities and non-profit organizations to provide cultural programs at community and heritage festivals and events for their respective communities. Special priority is given to the municipalities that fund UAC, organizations representing diverse populations, events that feature artists of diversity, organizations that target special population groups and events that will potentially reach large segments of Catawba County residents.
Staff and board members of UAC member organizations, with the exception of public and private school teachers, qualify to receive this type of grant to attend workshops and conferences that will strengthen their professional skills and expand their capabilities.
