A $100,000 grant is slated to be used to "help artists develop the knowledge and skills they need to build satisfying, sustainable lives in South Carolina," and to "increase communication, interaction and cooperation among artists throughout the state and to raise the profile of artists as valuable contributors to the economy and communities," according to a press release. The grant was awarded to the South Carolina Arts Commission by the Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC), a group that seeks to improve conditions for artists. The Arts Commission said it hopes to accomplish these tasks by offering "training and networking opportunities. Artist gatherings, beginning with a statewide, all-discipline artists’ retreat with workshops and networking sessions, will provide artists with information they can use in their personal lives, communities and businesses."
Grant aims to help conditions for artists in S.C.
