The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County invites artists who live or work in Palm Beach County to attend a free workshop planned to assist in the grant application process for the 2014 South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Artist Fellowship awards.

To register, please visit: www.surveymonkey.com/s/SFCCOCT3 General Information: The South Florida Cultural Consortium (SFCC) is a partnership among the local arts agencies of Palm Beach, Broward, Martin, Miami- Dade and Monroe counties. In Palm Beach County, the SFCC is largely supported by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners. The SFCC’s Fellowship program is intended to nurture the artistic development of eligible visual and media artists who reside in one of these counties. Fellowships are not project- based; recipients may use the Fellowships according to their individual needs. Fellowship Amounts: Fellowships of $15,000 and $7,500 are awarded to selected visual and media artists from Palm Beach, Broward, Martin, Miami- Dade and Monroe counties. Eligibility: All emerging, mid-career and established South Florida professional artists (those residing in Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe or Palm Beach counties) are eligible to apply. The Consortium defines a professional artist as a person who has created a recognized body of original works of art within an artistic discipline over a sustained period of time, and who is striving to achieve the highest level of professional recognition. You may apply if you’re an artist serving as a volunteer on the boards, committees, task forces and/or similar advisory bodies of South Florida Cultural Consortium member agencies, so long as you’re not directly involved with the decision-making process for the Fellowship program.
