Creative Culture Grants Program 02/18/2013

Greater Cleveland is alive with creativity and you can help identify the next big idea. Several of the George Gund Foundation’s grantees are competing in the Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s Creative Culture Grants program. Cuyahoga County residents can vote to decide which two arts projects will be funded through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s new Creative Culture Grants program. The top two vote getting organizations will receive up to $300,000 ($150,000 each) of funding over the next 18 months. An independent panel of experts from outside Northeast Ohio selected the six finalists.

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s board of trustees is expected to approve and announce the winners on Monday, February 25, and the projects will take place between March 2013 and August 2014.

Vote online at www.cacgrants.org/vote through February 20. County residents may also vote by mail by downloading the Creative Culture Grants paper ballot and returning it to Cuyahoga Arts & Culture or by requesting it from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture by calling 216.515.8303.

Paper ballots must be delivered in person or by U.S. mail to Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s offices (1501 Euclid Avenue, Suite 407, Cleveland, Ohio 44115) by February 15 at 4:30 p.m. EST to be counted. Ballots received after the deadline and incomplete or illegible ballots will not be counted. Individuals of at least 13 years of age and residing in Cuyahoga County, Ohio at the time of the voting period are eligible to vote. Each voter may vote only once.
