Scholarship Program for Residence Artists

  • Some of our qualifying resident artist applicants require subsidies to offset travel expenses, supplies, and residency fees. Scholarships afford these highly qualified applicants the opportunity to be a Lowe House Project Resident Artist.

Scholarships for Family-Fun and Life Long Learning Playshop Participants

  • We want to make it possible for more families and multi-generational participants to be able to benefit from Lowe House Project programs offered by resident artists which require fees.

General Operating Expenses in Support of Ongoing Free and For-Free Educational Programming.

  • Expenses for rent, utilities, and supplies, from paper products to cleaning supplies, add up but are essential to keeping the doors open and lights on and to maintaining a clean and welcoming facility for the ongoing programming. Tax deductible donations enable us to continue offering the facility for free writers’ and poets’ groups, book clubs, civic and social community groups, lectures, talks and “playshops” and workshops—all of which encourage and support live-long learning and the development of creative expression for participants of all ages and backgrounds, conducted by local and regional artists who also derive benefits –both financial and developmentally–while sharing their creative skills and talents with others.
  • Arizona Commission on the Arts acknowledged the contributions the Lowe House Project programming is making to our community at large by awarding the Lowe House Project a 2020 Community Investment Grant to help offset operating expenses. Needless to say, this small grant will help keep the doors open and programming going and growing! As a result, funds allocated for operating expenses can now be directed to expanding programming and fulfilling the mission.
