Charlotte Is Creative and the Charlotte chapter of CreativeMornings is proud to offer the Helpful, Unfettered Gift (HUG) Creative Micro-Grant Program.

Each month, two $250 HUG Micro-Grants will be awarded at each month’s CreativeMornings/Charlotte meeting. Winners and their projects will be announced and another round of creative Charlotteans will be encouraged to apply.

Here’s what we want a HUG to do:

  • Help fund a Creative Charlottean to pursue their passions, whether they be vocations or avocations.
  • Help change the conversation about Charlotte’s creativity by supporting creative endeavors that highlight the incredible artistic spirit of The Queen City.
  • Help ease the financial burden many creative Charlotteans face every day in pursuit of their passions.
  • Help push a creative idea or impulse into reality.
