Town Arts Fund is ready to accept proposal applications

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Town Arts Fund is accepting proposals for art projects.

In January, TAF will award $500 to $5,000 to winning projects that, in their words,“enable the development and presentation of creative projects that contribute positively to the greater community and to the vibrancy and diversity of Brattleboro arts and cultural landscape.”

In March 2019, at Brattleboro's Representative Town Meeting, voters approved a resolution to allocate $15,000 to create a Town Arts Fund. Over five months, a working group collected input from community members and met to craft guidelines and a process for distributing funds for public art projects.

In September, the Brattleboro Selectboard unanimously approved the process designed by the working group.

Come learn about the Town Arts Fund program and application process and get feedback on project ideas. An information session will be held Thursday, Nov. 14, from 9 to 10:30 a.m., at the Hatch Space, 35 Frost St.
