Weave-A-Dream Funding, Savannah

Here’s a great opportunity for funding for innovative arts, cultural projects.

The City of Savannah’s Weave-A-Dream (WAD) Panel has issued a call for proposals for its 2013 Weave-A-Dream initiative. Applications will be accepted through the calendar year, while funds are available. Programs are to be completed prior to December 1, 2013 and the application must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the start date of the project.

Project funding is available up to $3,500 for specific and innovative arts, cultural, or heritage programming or presentations that have a measurable, quantifiable benefit to Savannah’s diverse populations. The Weave-A-Dream initiative is particularly interested in proposals that have a strong youth focus (under 21). All program disciplines including multi-disciplinary projects are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible for consideration, organization must be a non-profit, 501c3, head-quartered in Savannah’s corporate limits. Proposed programs must also be produced within the City’s corporate limits. No individual artist applications will be accepted.

Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel and funding is awarded by a competitive funding process that considers the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy and plan for assessing the project’s success. Successful programs will identify a community need and utilize arts and heritage activities as the primary strategy to fulfill that need.
