This opportunity will support the development of Artist-in-Residence programs in 2023 and 2024 that recruit artists to use scientific data, cultural trends, or historical facts to interpret natural resources in the Lake Champlain basin.

LCBP will accept proposals for up to $40,000 for a two-year program and anticipates awarding three grants to support work in New York, Québec, and Vermont. The projects awarded from this opportunity will encourage artists to inspire and inform citizens about the lake environment, cultural heritage, or social concerns using a variety of creative media. They will continue the goals of current artist-in-residence programs supported by the LCBP.  Applicants will submit two-page pre-proposal concepts that will be evaluated through a competitive selection process. A subset of pre-proposal applicants will be asked to submit a full proposal. Grant award recipients will be selected from the pool of full proposals. Successful applicants will formally start work on their programs in February 2023.

Details about the Request for Pre-Proposals are available at or by contacting Jim Brangan of the Lake Champlain Basin Program at (802) 372-3213 or
