Americans for the Arts is pleased to again
partner with VANS Custom Culture on the VANS
Custom Culture Grant program. This program seeks to increase visibility
for and resources available to arts educators and schools across the country,
in order to sustain the arts as a vital part of education. The grant program is
supported by funds from Vans Custom Culture—an art
competition whose winning shoe design is produced and sold by Vans.
VANS Custom Culture Grants are available to public high schools (including charter schools) serving grades 9-12 that
allow arts education to thrive in their school community. The grants encourage the inclusion of the arts as an integral component of an
excellent education, and support activities that are consistent with local
and national learning standards for arts education. Ten (10) schools across the country will each receive a $2,000 grant
to support their work in providing high-quality music and/or visual arts
instruction for students.
