The City of Austin provides cultural arts programs for the Austin community by contracting with arts organizations for specific services. These contracts are referred to as Cultural Services Agreements, or Cultural Contracts.
The Cultural Arts Division hosts regular open office hours for all Cultural Funding Programs (Core, Cultural Expansion, Community Initiatives, Cultural Heritage Festivals, and Capacity Building). Anyone with questions regarding their final reports, applications, or contract requirements is welcome to attend. You may also bring drafts of your applications and final reports for review prior to submission. Recipients of cultural funding and groups or individuals interested in applying for any of the Cultural Funding Programs are encouraged to attend.
2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, 9:00 a.m. to noon, at Cultural Arts Division offices (201 E. 2nd Street). No appointments necessary.
In October, we will hold Open Office Hours every Tuesday -- October 6, 13, 20, and 27.
