Work Samples

The grant peer review panel uses work samples to evaluate the artistic quality and community impact of the applicant's proposed program. Work samples must represent the applicant's work in the appropriate grant category and have taken place within the last several years. Applicants in the following categories are required to submit at least one work sample with each application: Arts for Municipalities, Cultural Access, and Youth Arts. Applicants may submit up to two work samples with each application. For applicants who apply in two of these categories, relevant work samples should be submitted with each application.

Video work samples are strongly recommended. The maximum number and time length for each sample type is:

  • Video and audio: no more than five minutes
  • Images: no more than five
  • Documents: no more than five pages

Web links are preferred. If work samples are not available via a web link, then document, video, image or audio files may be uploaded to the online application. 

Examples of work samples include:

  • Video excerpt of a class
  • Scholarship application
  • Photos of festival artists/attendees
