The Artist Outreach Project (AOP) application deadline is July 31, 2013. Visual, performing and literary artists, 55 years of age and older, who live in Orange County and North San Diego County, are eligible to apply.
The Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation will award up to 20 artists $12,000 to provide under-served groups with educational, mentoring, and/or therapeutic arts experiences of the artist's own design.
These art experiences are intended to reach people of all ages who lack opportunities to engage in meaningful arts programs. Artists choose a nonprofit to collaborate with and the population they are interested in serving. Artists awarded the grant are expected to contribute an average of six hours a week to the people they are serving over the course of one year.
“To all of you that have thought you might like to reach out into he community with your terrific art talents and projects, I can tell you, this program is “fantastic and one of a kind! So roll up your sleeves, get involved with your community and bring the best of what the arts can offer to others”, Cheryl Ehlers, past grant recipient.
