Region 2 Arts Council Awards $241,000 in Fiscal Year 2017!



We are gearing up for a new fiscal year at Region 2 Arts Council. FY18 will begin on July 1, 2017.  It will bring  a new set of goals, a new year of grant deadlines, a new year of supporting arts projects and programming, a new office space (in October),  and many new opportunities to support artistic expression in our five county region.

Before we launch into the new, we want to take a moment to look at the now. Congratulations to all of our grant recipients, all of our grant applicants, and all who have planted a seed of creativity that has taken root and begun to grow.
