Baltimore County Artists Relief Grant

Baltimore County Artists’ Relief Grant

Opens June 15 / Closes July 15


The intention of this grant is to support artists who have seen diminished activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Three organizations rooted in Baltimore County — the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, Contemporary Arts, Inc., and the Historical Society of Baltimore County — are supporting Baltimore County based artists in order to strengthen our communities. Each organization will be focused on particular areas of art, and each will have its own grant review team. The program will award grant recipients up to $2,000 each. The grant award recognizes merit for current work, a body of artistic work, a new live performance, or a future project. These awards are for individual artists, not organizations.

To qualify for this grant artists must:

  • Be a Baltimore County resident or work in Baltimore County.
  • Not be currently supported by any of the granting organizations.
  • Be an artist in one of the following categories:
    • Nonfiction writing
    • Photography
    • Music performance or composition
    • Dance
    • Visual arts
    • Theater (Actors, Directors, Playwrights)
  • Not eligible are: producers, agents, or technical workers.

All applications are due by July 15th at 5:00pm. Awards will be reviewed in the summer and winners will be announced in early fall.
