The Telluride Arts Small Grants program is a long term investment to develop the expertise of local artists funded by the Town of Telluride and administered by Telluride Arts. Funds support individual artists working in the visual, media, performing and literary arts. Artist projects may include (but are not limited to) the development, creation, completion or presentation of new work; and professional development such as conferences, workshops, residencies and classes.

Artists are required to share work with the people of Telluride through a performance, publication, exhibit, screening, or a simple written or photo documentation of the project, in print or online. Telluride Arts will support this process through marketing and coordination.
