Funding of $100,000 to support music programs in Denver
Denver Arts & Venues and Denver Music Advisory Panel are excited to announce the 2019 Denver Music Advancement Fund recipients.
“Music is such an integral part of Denver’s cultural ecosystem,” said Ginger White Brunetti, director of Denver Arts & Venues. “We are thrilled to continue to partner with Illegal Pete’s for the second year of the Denver Music Advancement Fund. Through these grants, we can continue to support new and existing music programs, foster emerging talent, promote accessible music education and events, and amplify Denver’s strong music scene.”
The Denver Music Advancement Fund was created as a means to acknowledge the vital role music plays as an agent for economic vibrancy, education, community innovations and positive social change, and will provide $100,000 to individuals and organizations that spur growth in the local music ecosystem as well as grow new audiences, particularly youth audiences. The grants are funded through a public/private partnership between Denver Arts & Venues and Illegal Pete’s. Grantees are awarded up to $7,500 to support Denver’s music ecosystem. Out of an applicant pool of almost 100, 24 grantees were selected.
