ArtReach is an audience development grant for individual Monroe County artists and arts organizations and their partners. The name “ArtReach” is a pun on the word “outreach.”

The project must extend the applicant’s typical audience by reaching out to a new and broader population. Grant projects may be in any genre: performing, visual, historical or literary arts.

The applicant must have a partner organization. This partner need not be an arts organization. The partner contributes something of value to assist the artist or cultural organization to reach out to a new audience.

Awards are $2,000 per project. To request more than $2,000, applicants may request prior approval from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts.

Application Procedures
