Individual Artist Fellowship

In keeping with the belief that our communities are stronger and our lives are enriched when artists are encouraged to pursue their professional practice, DVAA is proud to administer direct funding to artists who live and work in Sullivan County.

  • For 2024, up to six Individual Artist Fellowships (two in the Visual Arts, two in the Literary Arts, and new for 2024, up to two in Compositional Arts) in the amount of $2,500 each, will be granted.
  • An element of this funding is a community engagement component. The project must engage a segment of the community through a public program such as an exhibition or performance that is open to the public.
  • The 2024 Application (EXTENDED) Deadline is February 14, 2024. Guidelines are now available, see link below.

For more information, contact DVAA’s Grants Manager.

This program is an extension of the “Arts for Sullivan” Statewide Community Regrants Program, a  program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.

About Arts for Sullivan

In accordance with its mandate from the State Legislature to encourage participation in the grants decision-making process at the county and regional level, the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) inaugurated the Statewide Community Regrant (SCR) Program (formerly known as Decentralization) in 1977 for the redistribution of public funds. This program enables selected local arts councils, county governments, or regional advisory boards to regrant state funds for arts events and cultural development within their communities.

Since 1984, Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) has worked with NYSCA as the SCR Program site in Sullivan County, for the purpose of administering Arts for Sullivan funding for artists, art organizations, cultural and heritage groups. The Arts for Sullivan SCR Program is largely credited for establishing Sullivan County’s cultural life as we know it today––relevant, vibrant, and healthy.

The Individual Artist Fellowship grant is an extension of the “Arts for Sullivan” SCR Program administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance with funding provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with support from the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
