Eligibility and Guidelines
If you'd like to hold a performance, exhibit, reading or other art project in your community, we encourage you to apply to Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PA Partners) for up to $2500! The goal of these projects is to increase access to the arts. The work can be any genre—visual art, dance, theatre, music—and must be open to the public. In short, we're looking for well-planned projects that will bring high quality art to people who might not already have many arts experiences available to them.
