Two Lansdale organizations win grants

November 15, 2018 by  

The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance has announced that 19 arts organizations from throughout Montgomery County have won grants, and two Lansdale organizations were among them, according to an article on

The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Project Stream grants were the source of the funds, which totaled over $19,000. According to the Council, the grants will be used to support organizations and artists that are involved in “innovative, community-based arts projects.”

Among the winners are theater companies, mural artists, museum programmers, and concert organizers. The program’s organizers hope that the grants will go to support art that is visible in the community and makes an impact at the local level. Among these programs are operas that are performed by students in elementary school, and an art program for older people who suffer from dementia.

The two Lansdale winners are the Borough of Lansdale itself, and the Lansdale Library Association. The Borough will receive $1,086 to help ensure the continued operation of the White’s Road Park Concert and Performing Arts Series. The series’ 37th season starts in 2019.

The library association will receive $1,203, which will support engagements with Simple Gifts, a duo that performs folk and world music. They plan a community concert, as well as outreach to seniors in three different facilities. Winners of grants like this could work with a flyer printing company to inform residents of the support.
