In 2014, Colorado Creative Industries and Think 360 Arts for Learning joined forces to launch a new collaborative grant-making program: Colorado Arts Partnership (CAP) Grants. Funded by Colorado Creative Industries, and the National Endowment for the Arts, CAP Grants are developed with several goals in mind: accessibility, building community connections, leveraging school investment, and visibility.
Colorado schools serving PK-12 students have the exclusive opportunity to receive funding that supplements and supports arts instruction for students during the school day. Schools apply for funding for a wide variety of projects including, but not limited to: arts days, installation projects, performing arts productions, and artist residencies. For the last six CAP Grant cycles more than 100 schools have been served.
