Placemaking conference scholarships announced by RISCA
Rhode Island State Council on the Arts today announced it is offering scholarships for Rhode Islanders to attend The Art of Placemaking conference.
RISCA is encouraging Rhode Islanders to join leading practitioners and experts in the field of creative placemaking for two days of exploration and dialogue about measuring and communicating the impact of using art to build and transform community. Meet, learn from and engage with some of the sector’s leaders who will be presenting their work at The Art of Placemaking Conference. This event will give participants the opportunity to have deeper and more impactful conversations and interactions with their peers.
Requests for scholarships should be submitted no later than November 1, 2013 to Elena Patino, Community Arts Program Director: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants should submit an email request to Elena, providing contact information, a descriptive paragraph on themselves and their work, the reason they need financial help to attend the conference, and a short paragraph explaining their interest in this conference and what they hope to get out of attending.
Established in 1967, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) is charged by the state legislature to stimulate public interest and participation in the arts and to serve as the liaison to the state arts community. Funds for programs and services carried out by RISCA are provided by the Rhode Island State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
To meet its legislative mandate, the Arts Council administers competitive grants to RI artists, non-profit organizations, schools and units of municipal and state governments. In addition to grants, the Arts Council provides technical assistance, information services, a slide registry, and partnerships.
