New funding for arts and culture in Wyoming
The Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund has announced two new deadlines for grants to nonprofit and governmental organizations in Wyoming, the earlier of which is April 1st.
Fund Administrator Renee Bobee says the fund supports groups that enrich the state by providing essential cultural opportunities for residents in a variety of ways, including fairs and exhibitions, archaeological research, musical performances and historical preservation projects. Bobee says the grant can also help organizations to grow and develop.
“We help with those things that are very obvious to an audience, you know, maybe it’s a fair or a festival,” says Bobee, “but we also help with those organizations that present or produce the arts and culture in the state of Wyoming and just help with them, you know, sometimes their very basic needs.”
Bobee says that the University of Wyoming will use a past grant to tour a Moldovan singing ensemble across the state. The maximum grant is 50,000 dollars, and the average award is 17,000 dollars.
