Saratoga Arts announced the grant recipients for its 2022 Community Arts Regrant Program that supports organizations and individual artists in Fulton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties.
Some 47 grants totaling $148,500 were awarded to support community- based arts events taking place in 2022.
“We are thrilled to be setting a record this year not only in the amount of funding distributed but also with the number of projects we will be able to fund,” said Charlie Owens, grants and community relations manager. “After years of isolation, it is thrilling to know these funded projects can continue to create art in our communities and, perhaps more importantly, build community through the arts.”
With funding awarded from the state Council on the Arts, Saratoga Arts’ Community Arts Regrant Program supports artists, nonprofit organizations, and government departments in the three counties, in partnership with qualifying organizations and artists, to present arts and cultural programs of high artistic merit in local communities.
This years’ grant recipients were celebrated at the annual Community Arts Celebration at Saratoga Arts, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs.
