Artists must apply for S.O.S. grants by Feb. 5

Artists living in the counties of Essex and Franklin may apply for Special Opportunity Stipends (S.O.S.) grants up to $600 through the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks.

S.O.S. grants are designed to help individual and collaborating artists take advantage of an imminent opportunity that will have a significant impact on their career or artistic development. The program was developed by the New York Foundation for the ARts. Artists working in all disciplines of the arts (including literature, media arts, visual arts, music and theater) may apply.

The deadline for the opportunities taking place in March through June is Feb. 5. Deadlines fall three times a year, in February, May and September.

For applications or more information, contact the Arts Council for Northern Adirondacks at 962-8778 or e-mail grants@artsnorth.org. Additional applications may be downloaded on NYFA's Web site at www.nyfa.org. Applications must be postmarked by 5 p.m. or hand-delivered to the NYFA offices by 5 p.m., Feb. 5.
