Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant Program
The Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant recognizes the important contribution of working artists to the cultural life of the region by providing an annual financial award to promote the artistic growth of visual artists and craftspeople. The purpose of the award is not to reward past work, but to recognize the applicant best positioned to continue the improvement of their artistic career.
