Urban Arts Fund applications due May 3
Denver Arts & Venues has launched the Urban Arts Fund graffiti prevention program for 2013 and applications for funding are due by Friday, May 3.
The UAF prevents graffiti vandalism by creating positive, well-tended and active community gathering spaces, and by generating opportunities for young people to participate in diversionary art and leadership programs.
“Self-expression is hugely valued in Denver, and the UAF gives kids a chance to explore their artistic side while also making a positive impact on their communities,” said Mary Valdez, Public Art Program Coordinator for Denver Arts & Venues.
Selected applicants are eligible to receive anywhere from $500-$5,000 for their projects. Application forms are available at http://artsandvenuesdenver.com/public-art/urban-arts-fund/graffiti-prevention-program-application.
