Hug Grants Helping Charlotte’s Creative Community

One organization helps Charlotte's creative community one Hug Grant at a time.

Our friends, Tim and Matt with Charlotte is Creative joined us in studio to talk about one of the first Hug Grants they handed out. A Hug Grant is a $250 strings free micro-grant given to people in the Charlotte area that are doing creative things. The grant was given to a local artist. She doesn’t use photography or paint, instead she uses colored pencils to create her art. And she’s got a very specific reason why.

Be sure to watch QC@3 today, Irisol Gonzalez will be joining us in studio to talk more about what receiving this grant meant to her.
