Bridges Arts Council Application for Support

The Bridges Arts Council serves its mission of providing advocacy for the arts and cultural organizations in Valley City, the Sheyenne Valley, and neighboring communities. To facilitate this mission, it relies on different revenue streams to provide funds for artistic events and opportunities for participation in the arts. The Bridges Arts Council/Community School of the Arts is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In 2021, the Bridges Arts Council took over the administration of the Community School of the Arts through a memorandum of understanding with Valley City State University. Both entities (the CSA and BAC) work in conjunction towards a common mission of arts advocacy and support.

Grants and scholarships are just one way that we seek to make our programming and the arts more accessible to all in the Barnes County/Valley City region. This application is for those who are seeking either grant support to fund an arts-related project or activity in Valley City or the Barnes County Area or scholarship support to take a private music lesson or art through the Community School of the Art.
