Heads up local artists. The Fast Track grant application process is open until February 1, 2011.
I can speak from experience. I’ve received this grant 3 times over the years. It’s not a huge amount of money but, I’ve been pleasantly surprised each time by the interest and passion this gift of support generates. It is well worth the effort. So, go for it!
