Our Vision Statement:
Locals Ownly is a grassroots and self-sustaining collaborative dedicated to promoting the creative community by uniting the many elements of our artistic passions. We promote creative freedom by building cohesive cultural identity through networking, exposure, and the material support of locals.
Part of our efforts include an Artist Scholarship Program for which we accept donations with the intent of assisting local artists financially, specifically in the pursuit of their creative endeavors. This scholarship money will be given out based on application submissions, where artists can make a case for their project and discuss how financial assistance could help make their ideas become a reality. The goal of this scholarship program is to help alleviate some of the obstacles that can stand in the way of the creation of art in our community. We also put on many events that open new spaces for creative expressions, often including a mix of artistic mediums ranging from material art to music and from screen-printing to poetry, in the hopes of growing the community around the Inland Empire art scene. Funds from this donation box will go toward continuing to bring these eclectic events to our area. So we ask, if you are willing and able, to donate what you can to help us in our mission of building a vibrant and expressive art community in the Inland Empire, where all can come and feel welcome to create together and support each other in some of the most beautiful ways humans connect.
Simply direct yourself to the tab titled 'scholarship', and you can submit a short paragraph explaining to us why you need funding for your artistic endeavors. There is no right or wrong answer. We would love to help you out. We will try to respond to you as soon as we can.
