Auburn Public Theater to Administer State Grants
July 23, 2012
Auburn Public Theater selected by New York State Council On The Arts (NYSCA) to be the administrative site for its five-county decentralization grant program
New York State Council On The Arts has selected Auburn Public Theater (APT) as a site for the regranting of funds for the arts in Cayuga, Seneca, Wayne Yates and Ontario Counties.
This new organization will be called the Finger Lakes Community Arts Grants (FLCAG) and will be headed by Kayleen Wilkinson. For the last year, Ms. Wilkinson has worked as the administrative assistant at APT and now, in addition to DEC Grants Coordinator, will be director of marketing and communications for Auburn Public Theater. Ms. Wilkinson is a graduate of Wells College in Aurora, N.Y. and completed her post-graduate studies at The Newhouse School at Syracuse University.
The Decentralization Program was developed to ensure New York State's cultural funding reaches every part of the state. The purpose of FLCAG is to fund nonprofit community arts organizations, arts education and individual artists who are not currently funded directly by NYSCA. Decentralization support enables emerging artists and organizations to grow professionally and to enhance the cultural climate in communities and neighborhoods where they live and operate.
The program was formerly administered by the Phelps Arts Center.
Grants are to be awarded to projects that occur between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013.
