Berkeley Arts Council Awards Community Grants

Also seeking new proposals.

The Berkeley Arts Council has awarded grants to fund two more projects in its “Amplify the Arts” grant program.

A grant to the WVU School of Medicine will provide funding for a Certified Art Therapist to present a workshop to healthcare students on the history and uses of art therapy in patient care and in judicial arenas. The workshop will be opened to WVU Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine as well as nursing students at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College.

A grant to the Berkeley Community Chorus will support a spring concert to be presented in May at the Westview Baptist Church. The grant will help fund expenses related to the rehearsal venue, music and other supplies, and the stipend for the accompanist.

Also announced is the third cycle of the program. The maximum grant amount has been increased to $750.00 and proposals will be accepted until February 25, 2013. Details and application forms are available on the Berkeley Arts Council web site at www.berkeleyartswv.org/amplify/.
