The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks has announced the recipients of the Special Opportunity Stipend Grant Round Three for opportunities in July through October. The S.O.S. Grant is designed to help individual artists of all disciplines take advantage of unique opportunities that will significantly benefit their work or career development. Literary, media, visual, music and theatre artists may request support ranging from $100 to $600 for specific, forthcoming opportunities that are distinct from work in progress. Deadlines are in February, May and September each year. There is no waiting period for artists to reapply if they have received funding previously. The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks administers the S.O.S. grant in Essex County to Martha Gallagher. Call the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks for next deadline for opportunities taking place in November to February 2009. S.O.S. is made available through the New York Foundation for the Arts.
