What's New About the Arts and special events Grant Programs?

The City of Fort Myers arts and culture grant program has been designed to foster and grow the thriving and eclectic cultural arts community in Southwest Florida. The purpose of the grant program is to activate the City of Fort Myers with exciting and alluring artistic offerings that leave a LASTING IMPRESSION on residents and visitors alike. Because arts and culture are the heartbeat of Fort Myers, we seek projects that capture the uniquely charming SWFL flavor through a plethora of artistic mediums and forms. All projects and programs are welcomed, including but not limited to visual arts, fine arts, photography, performing arts, sculpture, cinematic, digital arts and even literary. Creativity is endless and so is the talent in Southwest Florida. The Arts & Culture Division in the City of Fort Myers is entrusted with bringing that talent to the forefront throughout the city.
