Can I apply to local and regional grant programs as well as programs through the State? 

Yes. Since Miami-Dade County, the South Florida Cultural Consortium and the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs are separate entities, there are no restrictions to applying to programs from all three sources.

Can the Department provide funding for my art project? 

The Department’s grants to artists are not project-specific. Artists seeking grant funds for a cultural activity, i.e., a theatrical production, may submit an application to the Community Grants Program under the fiscal agency sponsorship of an eligible, non-profit, tax-exempt organization. For further information, please contact grants administrator Dana Pezoldt at 305.375.2161 or danap@miamidade.gov.

Do you provide assistance in completing any of the artist-related applications? 

Workshops for the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowships for Visual and Media Artists are provided every summer in four counties. Click here for a schedule of 2005 workshops. Questions regarding the Dance Miami or Downstage Miami programs can be directed to program administrator Rem Cabrera by calling 305.375.4634.

Do you provide grants to artists? 

The Department provides five grant programs to address the needs of Miami-Dade County-based artists. The South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists grants $15,000 and $7,500 awards to resident visual and media artists. Dance Miami Choreographer’s Fellowships awards three $5,000 grants to nurture the development of local choreographers. Downstage Miami provides local playwrights with opportunities to develop new work in tandem with such master playwrights as Nilo Cruz and A.R. Gurney. Artist Access provides mini-grants of up to $750 for artists to take advantage of professional development opportunities. The Creative Capital Professional Development Program, presented in conjunction with the Creative Capital Foundation of New York, is a new program structured to address the professional development needs of individual artists originating works in the dance, theater, music, literature and the visual arts.

The Artist Enhancement Grants Program provides $500, $750 and $1,000 grants to assist practicing, professional and emerging visual and performing artists residing in Florida. Support is directed to specific, professional development, skill-building opportunities to advance work and careers. Contact the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs at 850.245.6470 or go online to www.florida-arts.org.

Additional grants to individual artists are also available through the State of Florida’s Division of Cultural Affairs.

In addition, the Filmmakers’ Workshop provides professional development opportunities for screenwriters and filmmakers in a workshop/lab format in conjunction with Miami Light Project’s “Here and Now Festival.” For further information, contact Miami Light Project at 305.576.4350.
