This grant category provides funding for individual artists who want to take that next step in their career. Successful applicants have received grants to attend conferences, go overseas to install an art exhibition, record a music CD at a professional studio, show a film at an indie film festival, attend an artist residency program or to work with an out-of-state mentor. Many requests are for travel costs. A number of artists, writers and performers have used IAPD funds to hire a contractor to build a professional web site.
