Our Open Grant program gives artists the platform they need to succeed. Below is a letter from one of our recipients @mayomelz :
The application process was well detailed and very straightforward. I had no problem getting in touch with the event organizers, Let me add that Nina and Jennifer, and the @openartsmusic team, were so kind to allow me to apply for the Grant even though I had found out about it shortly after application and call to artists had closed. Throughout everything, from applying to the vending experience, I could see how much everyone involved cared deeply about promoting and fostering the community talent. The team was helpful in answering any questions, and took care of the artists in a way that I rarely see at community art events and fairs.
I most likely would not have been able to afford participating in the event without the grant. As a vendor, I was fortunate enough to sell several art pieces that day, and due to the grant I was able to put a good amount of money toward my degree in animation. Most importantly, I met and spoke with several other talented artists in the community. Being relatively new to California at the time, it was great having the opportunity to meet fellow artists who provided me a lot of advice on the art scene in the neighboring areas. It was the first big moment that made me feel at home in Glendale.
