Cattaraugus County Arts Council is Now the Tri-County Arts Council, reflecting our work in Cattaraugus, Allegany & Chautauqua counties.
The Tri-County Arts Council is transforming the quality of life in the Southern Tier of New York State through education, service and community outreach. Every class we teach, every child who paints, every grant we administer, every event we promote, every artist we support, every tourist we draw, every festival we organize, is for the purpose of making this beautiful place we live an even better place. An interesting place. A stimulating place. A place where people want to live, and work, and raise families.
Tri-County Arts Welcomes New Board Members
We are pleased to welcome two new board members - Jenny Brown, from Chautauqua, and Corey Fecteau representing Allegany County.
Artist Fellowship Workshop August 20th, 7-8:30pm
We are excited to be hosting Gabriella Calandro from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) to provide information about applying for the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship. The Fellowship is a cash grant of $7,000, not for a specific project, but simply to give you the time, space and resources you need to create. This is a free event and open to anyone interested in learning more about this opportunity. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information will be provided about the application and panel processes for the upcoming cycle. The disciplines awarded will be in Architecture/Environmental Structures/Design, Choreography, Music/Sound, Photography, and Playwriting/Screenwriting. NYFA has administered the state-wide artist fellowship program on behalf of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) for 33 years.
Arts Grants Information Sessions Have Begun! The Grant Application deadline is October 5th.
If you are interested in applying for any of the Arts Grants administered by the Tri-County Arts Council, you must attend a mandatory information session or meet with the grants administrator one-on-one. Find the schedule and more information HERE.
Patrons can find regional arts & cultural events to attend and organizations can post their events directly! Promoting the cultural arts in our region is a primary mission of the Tri-County Arts Council. To that end, for several years the Arts Council has been publicizing regional events through an email newsletter sent to our subscriber list. To provide easier access by the public and give organizations the ability to submit their own events directly, the Arts Council has commissioned a Regional Community Events website calendar. Cultural organizations, non-profits, artists, and businesses can submit arts events for any of the following categories: dance, fairs & festivals, film, galleries, music, reading & lectures, theater, and classes. Patrons of the arts can find regional arts events listed in one calendar so you can easily find events and groups you like to see and support. Come one and all to find the arts at events.myartscouncil.net.
Tri-County Arts Council programs and services are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support comes from the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning, and Tourism, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, community business sponsors, and private memberships and donations.
