Illinois Arts Council awards Kartemquin

The Illinois Arts Council has awarded Kartemquin a general operating grant of $11,050 for 2014. This is an increase from their award for previous years, and we are delighted to receive the crucial funding in support of our mission to spark democracy through documentary.

Illinois Arts Council Program Grant funds provide support to established not-for-profit organizations that make a significant local, regional, or statewide impact on the quality of life in Illinois. Grants recognize arts programming of high quality that is appropriate to and reflective of the communities served and that broaden opportunities for the public to participate in the arts.

Successful applicants demonstrate strong operations, stable management, ongoing assessment and evaluation and a strong commitment to making artistic programs accessible and relevant to a diverse range of participants. Organizations must also show that their programs and activities have artistic, educational, and cultural value.
