Creative Careers & Artist Grants
Art Possible Ohio offers technical support and advice for artists applying for grants through the Ohio Arts Council's Artists with Disabilities Access Program (ADAP).
ADAP provides funding that gives individual artists with disabilities and organizations that serve them the resources they need to further their artistic development.
For support services and assistance with the application, contact Art Possible Ohio directly at info@ArtPossibleOhio.org or call us at 380.380-799-MAKE (6253).
Art Possible Ohio has partnered with organizations and institutions across Ohio including the Cincinnati Art Museum, Columbus Museum of Art, ArtsNow, the Ohio Museums Association, and the Ohio History Connection. Get started with our Cultural Access Guide and then contact us to dig deeper into accessibility and inclusivity at your organization.
Whether you are a teacher, artist, or other creative professional we offer and can design professional development that meets your needs. You can view recordings of some of our previous sessions on our YouTube page and upcoming professional development opportunities below.
