Gulf Coast Community Foundation recently awarded Embracing Our Differences a $40,000 Arts Appreciation grant, which offers unrestricted funding to area arts organizations in support of their artistic mission. According to Sarah Wertheimer, Embracing Our Differences’ executive director, the grant will help fund the organization’s 2019 outdoor exhibition celebrating diversity, which runs January 19 to March 15 in Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota. The grant will also be directed to empower EOD’s annual educational outreach programs and initiatives. The grant will also provide vital resources for Embracing Our Differences' annual outreach initiatives, including its Make-A-Day-of-It! program, which provides free bus transportation for thousands of students and teachers to visit the outdoor exhibit and other arts and cultural venues. A portion of the grant will also be directed to Embracing Our Differences' annual teacher workshops and retreats, which provide area educators with skills, strategies and resources relating to arts appreciation, character building and diversity education.
