(Salina, KS 08-13) The Salina Arts & Humanities Foundation announces that the application process has begun for the “Organizational Project” category of the Horizons Grants Program.  These grants support artistic growth through Salina’s cultural and nonprofit organizations.  For example, the Salina Symphony will present Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” in February 2014 with funds awarded through this grant. 
Through the generous support of donors, this Horizons Grant category supports Salina and Saline Country organizations in developing the artistic, cultural, historic and aesthetic resources of the community. This program addresses the “Big Ideas” cultural plan by helping the arts, culture, and heritage sectors improve their reach across Salina.
Salina Arts & Humanities staff is available to assist applicants in formulating a successful grant proposal.
