98 Local Arts Groups Receive Project Stream Grants

 On October 9, 2015, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance distributed $109,754 in Project Stream grants at an award ceremony held at PECO’s Energy Hall.

Project Stream grants provide seed money to individual artists and organizations offering innovative, community-based arts projects in southeastern Pennsylvania, and are made possible through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts’ (PCA) Partners in the Arts program with additional support provided by PECO. The program enables the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to reach a wider audience by increasing access to funds for organizations and artists across the state, thereby increasing statewide audience exposure to arts activities.

“The Cultural Alliance is proud to be a regional partner of the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts,” said Maud Lyon, Cultural Alliance President. “Project Stream is a great resource to connect artists and organizations to their community. Through this funding, local artists and organizations are empowered to make a real impact where they live and work, with projects that make neighborhoods vibrant, engage students, and energize community spaces.”

The Cultural Alliance’s Project Stream provides grants of up to $2,500 to eligible organizations and individuals conducting arts projects in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. This year, 98 individual artists and nonprofit organizations from around the region were funded, with an average award of $1,119.54. PECO also contributed $15,000 to the program, which was distributed evenly among recipients.
