The Project Stream is open to individual artists and community groups who apply for support of an arts-related project with strong public impact. Currently 28 PPA Projects in our 2014-2015 project cycle are reaching a wide range of constituents, from young children to senior citizens, and engaging audiences through exhibitions, concerts, films, workshops, and performances.
Free PPA grant workshops are scheduled in May for novice and returning applicants.
Arts Count Celebration
Arts Count celebrates the essential public and private partnerships that fuel the arts, engages business and foundation leaders as well as elected officials to be advocates for arts and culture, and acknowledges the year’s grant recipients.
Free to members of the Arts Council and grant recipients, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council event honors the Project Stream and Program Stream recipients awarded state arts grants through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts.
Save the Date! Arts Count 2015 will be held on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 and hosted at the new Lehigh Valley High School for the Performing Arts in South Bethlehem.
