2020 Creative Challenge Grants

GOAL
To promote weaving and all related fiber arts and to preserve all the traditions of these arts

FUNDS AVAILABLE
To accomplish this goal, ANWG will award grants for activities such as lectures, seminars, workshops, research projects, retreats, etc. Up to 6 US$600 grants will be awarded for use between June 2020 and December 2021. These grants are made possible by the profit from the 2019 ANWG Conference in Prince George, BC and two unfunded grants from the previous round. Our thanks to the Prince George Conference Committee for a successful event.

ELIGIBILITY
Grants are available to any guild or study group within a guild that is a member in good standing with ANWG (current in their dues). Each application must be signed by the Guild President and, if appropriate, the Chair of the project/event. Each guild is allowed one application.

APPLICATION PROCESS
Keeping in mind the stated Goal, please complete the application and budget detailing your project/event.
