On July 19 and 20, NYSCA held its Council Meetings in order to vote on grant recommendations for FY2017. The FY2017 Performing, Literary & Visual Arts Committee and the FY2017 Multi-Disciplinary Arts Committee proposed candidates for funding in the Visual Arts, Theatre, Facilities, State & Local Partnerships, Folk Arts, and Presenting programs. NYSCA program staff and representatives of the Council’s advisory panels, pictured below, spoke about the applications they received in their particular disciplines.
Recommendations for additional programs, including Architecture + Design, Arts Education, Dance, Electronic Media & Film, Individual Artists, Literature, Museum, and Special Arts Services, will be reviewed at the next Council Meetings October 5 and 6. Regional Economic Development Council grant recommendations will be reviewed in December.
