Cultural Office awarded $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $25 million in grants as part of the NEA’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2018.  Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $10,000 to Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region for PeakRadar.com. The Art Works category is the NEA’s largest funding category and supports projects that focus on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and/or the strengthening of communities through the arts.

“It is energizing to see the impact that the arts are making throughout the United States. These NEA-supported projects, such as this one to Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, are good examples of how the arts build stronger and more vibrant communities, improve well-being, prepare our children to succeed, and increase the quality of our lives,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “At the National Endowment for the Arts, we believe that all people should have access to the joy, opportunities and connections the arts bring.”

PeakRadar.com is a multi-pronged program that spans digital, print, and in-person platforms to grow local arts audiences. It serves as a free marketing department for the local creative sector, promoting arts participation to local residents and tourists in the Pikes Peak region.
