Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $8,000 to Minnesota residents in eligible regions for arts projects. The purpose of this program is to encourage the development of arts in the community. Applications are invited from artists from diverse backgrounds. Eligible applicants must be residents of Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, or St. Louis County.

Criteria:

  • Artistic Quality, both of past work and of the proposal presented
  • Ability to carry out the project
  • Your strategy to know whether you accomplished what you set out to do (evaluation and assessment of the project)

The committee will also consider how the grants selected would impact the Council's goal of making sure their funds reach a diverse pool of artists. For this purpose, the ARAC is using both the goal of reaching a variety of artistic disciplines and the State of Minnesota’s definition of diverse populations as stated in their competitive grant review policy. Diverse populations include:

  • Racial and ethnic communities, including American Indians
  • LGBTQI communities
  • Disability status
  • Veterans
  • Geographic diversity within and across Minnesota
