The Sierra County Arts Council is always seeking opportunities to bring more events and programs to our geographically isolated communities. We do not enjoy the same volunteer base and funding resources as our urban neighbors. The AMS program is designed to make the greatest use of our resources to collaborate to with local organizations to bring more art and music to all parts of Sierra County.
Local organizations, civic groups, non-governmental organizations, and non-profits are eligible to apply for funding to hire artists and musicians to enhance events and programing through the AMS program. Examples of Sierra County based groups that may apply for sponsorship includes Volunteer Fire Departments, Sierra Schools Foundation, Rotary, Lions, Sports Boosters, PTO, Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen, Mountain Star Quilters, and 4H. Funding of up to $500 per year per organization is available through the AMS program.
All events and programming must take place in Sierra County. All funds will be paid directly to the musician or artist providing the service. Events and programs funded through the AMS program will be featured on the Sierra County Arts Councils website. To receive the easy one page application please contact B.J. Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 530-289-3673. Information at: www.sierracountyartscouncil.org. Application Deadline: March 31, 2016. Funds are limited and awarded on a first come first served basis. The Sierra County Arts Council is State-Local Partner with the California Arts Council.
