The Bossier Arts Council is pleased to announce its 2013 Decentralized Arts Funding recipients. The Louisiana Decentralized Arts Fund Program, initiated in 1995, makes the arts available in every parish in the State of Louisiana by providing grant funding for artists, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and local government agencies. Some of the goals of this program are to strengthen arts organizations and encourage professional artists to undertake projects that have meaningful community involvement and build audiences for the arts.
The recipients for this year’s Decentralized Arts Funding are: The Bossier Parish Talented Arts Program presenting “The Way It Is”, The Company Repertory Theatre presenting “Theatre Eclectic”, The Prevailing Winds presenting “Prevailing Winds Symphonic Band Concert Series”, and Apollo Elementary School presenting “Shreveport Opera Xpress’s The Ugly Duckling.”
The Decentralized Arts Funding Program is supported in part by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a Federal agency.
