Arts in Education
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Square Meal is a mini grant opportunity for artists in music, dance, visual arts, theater, literature and film, and for arts organizations and other creative projects, but the current round is just for Arts in Education.
Offered by Arts Council of Kanawha Valley, people come together to share a basic meal at an affordable price. All or part of the income from that meal is given as a grant to support a creative project. Grant applications are accepted up until the deadline. Everyone who purchases the meal gets one vote to determine who receives the grant. The grant proposals must meet four criteria and will be awarded at the discretion of the audience.
The next event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 17 in the Community Room at Habitat for Humanity, 301 Piedmont Road. Reservations for the meal are $16 ($10 goes toward the grant, $5 is for food, $1 goes to ACKV) until Oct. 15. Late reservations and at-the-door pricing will be $21 ($10 grant, $5 food, $5 ACKV). Reservations are limited to 50. Tickets may be purchased at http://artskv.org/support-ackv (PayPal fees apply) or mailed to ACKV, P.O. Box 1029, Charleston, WV 25324.
