Allied Arts receives 3 grants from state

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The state arts commission has given $88,910 to Allied Arts of Greater Chattanooga to continue its mission of spreading arts in the community.

The Tennessee Arts Commission awarded three grants to Allied Arts including: Major Cultural Institutions (MCI) grant of $63,000, Arts Build Communities grant of $15,910, and Arts Education: Teacher Training grant of $10,000.

"The Tennessee Arts Commission's support is critical to the well-being of Allied Arts and to the Chattanooga area community," said Dan Bowers, President of Allied Arts. "These grants demonstrate the Tennessee Arts Commission's strong support for arts and cultural programs in the Chattanooga area."

Funded under an agreement with the TAC and the National Endowment for the Arts, the $63,000 MCI grant is designated for "general, non-project support to well-established Chattanooga arts organizations."

The objective of the $15,910 Arts Build Communities grant awarded to Allied Arts is to build communities by nurturing artists, arts organizations, and arts supporters. The award, funded by the Tennessee General Assembly and administered in cooperation with the TAC and Allied Arts, provides funds for a variety of quality arts projects.

Allied Arts received $10,000 for an Arts Education Teacher Training grant, which is awarded to arts organizations who provide outstanding professional development opportunities for educators in arts integration instruction techniques and curriculum planning. The grant funds will cover the expenses of two workshop leaders from the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center, who will guide teachers through intensive workshops and hands-on coaching that strengthen literacy instruction through the arts.

Allied Arts and the Hamilton County Department of Education are participants in the Partners in Education Program with the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The Partners in Education Program supports the development of arts professional development workshops for classroom teachers.

This year Tennessee Arts Commission will provide a total of $488,910 in general operating and arts project grants to organizations in Hamilton County.
