It takes money to create great art and the Queens Council on the Arts knows that.
During the past year, the QCA awarded more than $200,000 to 26 individual artists and 43 organizations to help in the creation of arts and cultural programs throughout the borough.
First-time applicants are required to complete an application workshop, which they can do with an online tutorial, attending a group informational meeting or scheduling a one-on-one sit-down with a QCA staff member.
Next Thursday, Aug. 22, the QCA will hold its first application workshop of the season at its office located at 37-11 35th Ave. in Astoria. The entrance to the building is on 37th Street.
Workshops are open to individual artists and organizations, begin promptly at 6 p.m. and last about an hour and a half. No RSVP is required.
For more details about upcoming workshops and the application process, check out the QCA’s website.
The deadline to apply for a grant is Thursday, Oct. 10.
