ARTIST IN SCHOOLS + COMMUNITIES ROSTER

An online resource

NAC’S Artists in Schools + Communities Roster (AIS+C) features a diverse representation of individual artists and ensembles from Nevada and beyond. The AIS+C Roster is designed as an online resource for schools, organizations and communities to broaden and diversify participation in the arts through the engagement of artists in residencies and programs. The AIS+C Roster artists represent a range of arts forms, and all are experienced in collaborating with schools and communities to conduct learning in, through, or about the arts. The roster artists, selected through a rigorous review process, have program experience with at-risk youth, social services, special needs audiences, and lifelong learning.

The AIS+C Roster artists are listed below under their artistic discipline. Each of the artist’s profiles features biographical information on each artist, as well as examples of sample and past programs, professional development workshops for teachers and organization staff, areas of expertise, geographical availability, language proficiency, and contact information.

MEET NAC’s FY18 FELLOWS & FELLOWSHIP PROJECT GRANTEE

The Artist Fellowship Program was created to encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence by providing financial support to outstanding artists. Fellowship grants go to contemporary artists living in Nevada in the literary, performing, and visual arts (including media arts), and may be awarded at any stage of the artists’ career development. By recognizing and rewarding artistic accomplishment, the Fellowship Program promotes public awareness and appreciation of the role of the artist in our society.

Grants Program

The Grants Program reflects a significant commitment by the State of Nevada to support the creation of art and access to the arts for its citizens. NAC grants support the efforts of nonprofit arts and community organizations, public institutions and individual artists to make cultural activities and experience widely available to those who live in or visit Nevada. The reach of this program is expansive – grant recipients are found in every corner of the state, and sponsor activities such as exhibitions, concerts, festivals and film series. Grant monies also support Nevada’s dance, opera and theatre companies; symphonies, orchestras and choral groups, and local arts councils statewide. Though a NAC grant may be a small percentage of an organization’s total budget, the importance of these dollars reaches far beyond actual cash value – serving as a catalyst for other public and private support.
