What is a Catalyst grant?
ArtsKC Catalyst Grants are investments in people, programs and projects that make the arts more accessible, that sustain a vibrant and thriving arts community, and that support traditions of excellence as well as innovation and entrepreneurship in the arts.
Catalyst grants reach a broad range of organizations with budgets for arts activities that are generally less than $1 million annually. It is estimated that 25% of available grant funds raised in the spring of 2017 will be awarded in the Catalyst category for activities and projects that take place between July 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.
