The Kentucky Arts Council has awarded more than $1.2 million in operating support to 95 arts organizations across the Commonwealth for the 2018 fiscal year through its Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) program.
The KAP program provides nonprofit arts organizations with unrestricted operating support to ensure that year-round participation in the arts is available to the people of Kentucky.
“The Kentucky Arts Partnership organizations do the heavy lifting for the arts in their own communities, and we are grateful for their hard work and passion to serve, educate and invigorate the Commonwealth,” said Lydia Bailey Brown, arts council executive director. “These grants will help them as they continue their work growing the arts across the state.”
The competitive grants are awarded annually. A list of organizations that will receive funding for the 2018 fiscal year can be found on the arts council website.
The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, fosters environments for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
