Apply for Kentucky Arts Council TranspARTation Directory

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 12, 2020) — The Kentucky Arts Council’s TranspARTation Directory was previously only open to applicants who were also recipients of the council’s Kentucky Arts Partnership Grant. Due to a recent change, the directory will now be open to allow all Kentucky-based nonprofit arts organizations and venues to apply for inclusion.

The TranspARTation Directory is a list of arts organizations and venues that provide field trip options for Kentucky students to study exemplary works of dance, music, theater, literary, visual and digital media arts. Schools choose destinations from the TranspARTation Directory when applying for funding through the TranspARTation Grant Program.

“TranspARTation is one of our most popular grant programs, and an important component in bolstering arts education in the Commonwealth,” said Chris Cathers, Kentucky Arts Council executive director. “Opening up the opportunity to apply for inclusion in the TranspARTation Directory to all nonprofit arts groups will increase the number and diversity of arts experiences available to Kentucky students.”

Eligible venues can include, but are not limited to, museums, theaters, artist studios, concert halls and other sites that feature the arts. The application is open to any registered nonprofit organization or government/public entity operating in Kentucky. The deadline to apply is April 15.

For more information on applying to the directory, visit the arts council website or contact Samuel Lockridge at 502-892-3124 or
