|Artist Services Program|
The Artist Services Program encourages the work of Nevada's literary, performing and visual artists. With a focus on the needs and concerns of the individual artist, the program components serve artists through grant funding, programs supporting the work of artists, professional development opportunities and technical assistance.

ARTIST FELLOWSHIP GRANTS
ARTIST RESIDENCY EXPRESS GRANTS
The Artist Residency Express (AREx) Grant is designed for community and educational sponsors to host a short-term artist residency (one to three days) using an artist on one of the NAC artist rosters (Arts Learning, Folk Arts and Tumblewords.) Non-roster artists may be used, but require additional support materials/work sample. The residency design allows the artist to explore his/her discipline with students, teachers and community members through classes, demonstrations, lectures and discussions, rehearsals, performances, or community events. AREx grants are offered on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the year while funds are available. Read more.
