This is terrific! I am grateful that the Jester Artspace leadership had the wisdom to seek this grant and the ability to make a successful application. No small feat! What a wonderful thing you are doing for the community!

That's amazing, congratulations!

Fantastic! Congratulations!!

One of only 2 organizations in the state that got a StartUp grant!

such great news!!

Great news!

Think of me when you are planning workshop providers, Alan.

Any chance there may be some positions available for new art college graduates?
