Based on the results of Artists Count, the first comprehensive survey of regional artists and creatives, the Regional Arts Commission (RAC) will begin funding individual artists in 2013. RAC has only funded nonprofit organizations and consortiums since it was created in 1985.

Now each year, 10 St. Louis artists will each be awarded a $20,000 Fellowship, which is a financial investment in the careers of the selected artists and in the cultural vibrancy of the region.

Also, each year artists will be awarded from $500 to $3,000 to fund special equipment and materials, rental space, arts-related travel, conference fees and other resources.

For information about these opportunities and to download a copy of the Artists Count summary and full report, visit www.artistscount.com.
