Inspiring Young Adults

through Hands-On Experiences

Arts Without End provides grant funding to performing arts organizations to cover the cost of wages or paid internships for young adults working as performing artists, completing advanced study, or backstage creators.

We believe that through hands-on, educational experiences, we can build a stronger community support network for the classical performing arts in northern Colorado.

Applying for Arts Without End Funding

To be considered for funding, organizations must provide educational opportunities to interns regarding the performing arts business finances and operations including administration, board service, entrepreneurship, donor support, and more.


Application Deadlines

There are two application cycles each year, with the first application deadline in November, and the second in June.

Internship Requirements

While each internship can be different, interns will be required to be educated on the basic business fundamentals of the organization.

About Internship Requirements


To keep the arts alive and supported, we need to encourage and support the youth who are not only going to work within the arts world, but who are also going to become engineers, lawyers, doctors, etc. They will become our future audience, board members, and donors.
