This year, Next Gen North is focusing on programs across New Castle County that utilize the arts to support and inspire social change and innovation. Fine arts, visual, performing, creative, and folk arts that can be delivered across a broad spectrum of programming (school programs, summer camps, therapeutic arts, and traditional arts organizations, such as museums and theaters), fall within the scope of the funding area. Programs may be focused on adults, children or both. Next Gen North wishes to fund activities and programs that will have a long-term social impact.
Next Gen North’s full application and guidelines can be found at https://dcf.quickbase.com/db/bmmq2due4.
Once the application period has ended, Next Gen North members will review applications, visit finalists’ program sites and select organizations to receive funding. Recipients of Next Gen North’s grants will be recognized at a ceremony in September.
