The Boulder Arts Commission and staff of the Office of Arts + Culture are seeking feedback on the 2023 Grants Program. Each year, we gather input on the grant process – from the application to panel process to reporting – from community members and integrate it into our program. This aids in ensuring that the program helps to fulfill the goals of the Community Cultural Plan and is as smooth and easy as possible for all.
