Make your concept come to life! Creative Connections (C²) allows local artists, arts groups or arts-based organizations to submit proposals for arts programming that they wish to deliver. Artists can submit proposals during an intake period spanning Q1 (January - March) for projects occurring in that year. Arts Council will review applications and offer consultative services to help artists improve their capacity in creating proposals and event planning.
