The Vermont Arts Council this week announced 71 grants totaling $438,408, in the categories of cultural facilities, arts impact, arts partnership, and creation.

Through these programs, a college will receive assistance in providing a physically accessible ramp, a choreographer will have support to create a new work, and a rural arts organization will offer ticket subsidies to make their programs available to all.

A full list of grantees is available on the Vermont Arts Council website.

In Orange County, the following organizations received grants:

Nicola Smith (Tunbridge): Creation Grant to support the creation of a theatrical piece that documents the stories of female veterans

Friends of the Morrill Homestead (Strafford): Cultural Facilities Grant to support the installation of an audio-visual system in the Strafford Town House.

The Vermont Arts Council envisions a state “where everyone has access to the arts and creativity in their life, education, and community,” said Communications Manager Kira Bacon. Through its programs and services, the Council strives to increase public awareness of the positive role artists and arts organizations play in communities.

Since 1965, the Council has been the state’s primary provider of funding, advocacy, and information for the arts in Vermont. It may be reached at
