ACCR CULTURAL PLAN:

Our grant funding priorities are informed by The Art Center’s Cultural Plan, which reflects our mission and outlines the goals and action steps intended to achieve that mission as it relates to our support of the Capital Region’s artistic health and community. This is intended to be a living document, influenced by and responsive to community input. Our grant panelists reflect upon it during the grant review and funding process, and it is reflected in the scoring rubrics used during grant panels.
