The City of Savannah’s Weave-A-Dream (WAD) Panel has issued a call for proposals for its 2014 Weave-A-Dream—Cultural & Arts Projects initiative.
Applications will be accepted through the calendar year, while funds are available. Programs are to be completed prior to December 31 and the application must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the start date of the project.
In 2014, Weave-A-Dream funding has made it possible for the following arts programs: Savannah Nutcracker School Matinee, First Friday Art March, and the Synchronized Robot Dance Team. Project funding is available up to $2,500 for specific and innovative arts, cultural, or heritage projects or presentations that have "a measurable, quantifiable benefit to Savannah’s diverse populations."
The Weave-A-Dream committee seeks proposals that actively involve youth, seniors, and those who have limited access to arts based programs in Savannah. Program disciplines such as performing, visual, media, theater, folk, design (architecture), or literary arts are encouraged to apply.
To be eligible, an organization must be a non-profit, 501c3, head-quartered in Savannah’s corporate limits. Proposed programs must also be produced within the City’s corporate limits. No individual artist applications will be accepted. Applications are available on the Department of Cultural Affairs website (www.savannahga.gov\arts
). They can also be requested by contacting Eileen Baker at 912-651-6417 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel and funding is awarded by a competitive funding process.
