Florida Division of Cultural Affairs Workshops

Introducing OASIS:
Online Arts Services and Information System

Potential grant applicants are encouraged to attend

The Division is offering a series of OASIS workshops at several locations around the state. Knowledgeable staff will offer potential grant applicants important information about this new system. The workshops are open to the public; only an R.S.V.P. is required to attend.
