Creative Investment Program Workshop for Not-for-Profit Cultural Organizations Set for Fort Lauderdale Today
Broward Cultural Division invites interested Broward-based not-for-profit organizations to a workshop for the Third Cycle of the Creative Investment Program, offered today, April 30 at 5:30 p.m. in the Broward County Main Library, Cybrary Computer Lab, 7th Floor, 100 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale.
The purpose of the Creative Investment Program is to assist eligible Broward County not-for-profit cultural organizations with annual operating revenues of less than $100,000, by funding small creative cultural projects for which applicants have not received funds through any other Cultural Division incentive program.
The project must be an exhibition, a performance or other arts activity. The workshop will also prepare applicants on how to submit an online application. Organizations must be registered with the Florida Secretary of State as a cultural, not-for-profit corporation. They must have operated in their discipline(s) in Broward County for a minimum of one uninterrupted year following incorporation; and must have provided services in Broward County for a minimum of six months following the date of incorporation. Visit the Broward Cultural Division website for more eligibility details.
Recent examples of funded organizations include: Puppet Guild of South Florida, Inc. (South Florida Day of the Dead Festival), Broward Folk Club, Inc. (South Florida Folk Festival)
The next Creative Investment Program application deadline is Monday, June 2, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. for projects implemented from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015. There is no fee for the workshop. RSVP online for this workshop; and for more information, call Adriane Clarke, grants specialist, 954-357-7530.
