          Arts in Society is a collaborative grant-making program that fosters cross-sector work through the arts by supporting the integration of arts and culture into multiple disciplines critical to the health and well-being of Coloradans. Since 2017, the program has distributed over $2 million to fund over 100 projects across the state that incorporate arts and creativity in addressing some our communities' most important problems.

Arts in Society grants will provide funding to support individuals and organizations who seek to implement projects that utilize the arts as an integral element in promoting social justice and community welfare. Grants will range in size from $5,000-$35,000. Grant funds will be distributed in April 2024.

          Grants will be determined by a selection panel, which seeks projects that best broaden the understanding of the role arts play in society, demonstrate cross-sector work, exhibit cultural relevancy, foster community engagement, illustrate artistic excellence, and present opportunities for shared learning. Colorado artists, activists, non-profit organizations, universities, schools, and government agencies are all eligible to apply. Previous Arts in Society grant recipients are welcome to apply.

          In addition to receiving financial support, Arts in Society grantees participate in a learning community program through which they share expertise and learn with like-minded practitioners from across the state.

Arts in Society requires that final narrative and financial reports be submitted together within 60 days of the completion of the funded project and no later than the date stated in the grant award letter, or as modified in subsequent correspondence. Grant recipients who do not submit final reports are ineligible for further Arts in Society funding. If unusual circumstances arise that may create delays in reporting or significantly alter the progress of the funded project, please promptly inform the Arts in Society Program Manager.


An interim report is required for 2 year grants. Please submit your interim report at the midway point in your project completion. Upon receipt of your interim report any additional grant funds will be disbursed.
