Our Stories: a community resource for purposeful arts education presented by the Dairy Arts Center
Proposals are currently accepted on a rolling basis, with the final project being due one month after approval. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
With the generous support of the Xcel Energy Foundation, the Dairy Arts Center is seeking proposals for virtual arts education instructional videos targeting a range of age groups and a variety of art forms. Individual artists or arts organizations that represent a wide spectrum of art forms are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to: theater, visual arts, music, performing arts, literature, film or moving image, etc.
The Dairy is in the process of creating a multi-faceted arts education curriculum centered around the idea of storytelling. We are seeking instructional videos to be used asynchronously as virtual workshops that explore the art of storytelling using artistic elements like color, line, lyrics, shapes, composition or harmony to set mood, character or plot development. Your project should be targeted to one of the following age groups: elementary, middle, high school, and/or family programming.
Please submit a one-page description of your project to be eligible for our education microgrants. Within your description, indicate which age group your lesson is geared toward. Unique and creative takes on the implementation of storytelling will be favored.
Award: $500 microgrant
