Artists 360 offers the following grants and programs: 

Project Grants / Student Grants

Practicing artists are eligible for $7,500 project grants, and $1,500 grants are available for student artists. All grants will include learning opportunities to develop entrepreneurial skills and build sustainable careers, creating a network of leading regional artists. 

Community Activator Grants 

Four annual grants of $15,000 for individuals or collaborative partnerships that will fund projects  created by artists that provide opportunities to other artists, to create an active community of peer  support in the Northwest Arkansas region.

Creative Impact Grant

One annual grant of $25,000 will be awarded to an artist recognized both within and outside Northwest  Arkansas. This grant award recognizes an exceptional artist that  contributes to and nurtures the region’s cultural ecosystem. 

In elevating this network of local artists, Artists 360 brings value to the greater Northwest Arkansas region overall, creating a place where artists can thrive.
