Lake Placid Center for the Arts Grants $650,000 to 71 Arts Organizations

Through Audience Building Project

Initiative Supported by the New York State Council on the Arts

The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) is thrilled to announce the list of awardees from its inaugural Audience Building Project, a regrant program supported by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) this year.

The statewide program is focused on audience-building to support organizations as they recover from the COVID-19 and racial justice pandemics. LPCA is distributing a pool of $650,000 to presenters of all sizes with $5,000-$10,000 grants towards projects that are intended to grow and diversify audiences. By mitigating some of the financial risk involved in programming performing arts experiences that will appeal to a new or broader audience, the Audience Building Project aims to support arts organizations’ ability to develop deep, sustainable relationships within their communities.

See the full list of awardees HERE.
