Arts Grant Opportunity?

News was released today about the winners of the Kentucky Arts Partnership Grant. There were only a handful of winners from Northern Kentucky and only one based in Campbell county.

This is another grant opportunity for those involved in the arts in Fort Thomas to gain additional funding. A quick look at the Kentucky Arts Council website indicates a whole host of funding opportunities that could be explored.

With this in mind I wonder if the Village Players would consider teaming with the "Revive the Fort" efforts to revitalize the amphitheater to submit a joint arts grant for infrastructure and programming. In light of the recent article on fund raising efforts they are never going to get to their $1 million goal charging a couple hundred bucks for a booth at the festival. They are going to have to start looking for creative ways to find funding beyond the annual event.
