(CNS): The Cayman National Cultural Foundation (CNCF) is currently accepting applications for grants that can be used to bring projects to fruition or support ongoing programmes. In the past the grant has be awarded for training, productions, publications, festivals and special projects. CNCF is now accepting nominations for the National Arts & Culture Awards. Since 1990, these awards have recognised those who attain a high level of merit in their artistic discipline, or for contributions to art, culture, and heritage.

The Heritage Cross Medal recognises an individual or group for consistent and active, quality engagement in the preservation and/or celebration of Caymanian cultural heritage and the Star for Creativity in the Arts is awarded to artists whose work is of consistent, high quality creativity.
