Grants to Minnesota nonprofit organizations, public entities, government agencies, and individuals for projects that promote participatory artistic experiences in a range of genres and forms. Funding is intended for projects that enable lifelong learners to acquire knowledge, understanding, and skills in the arts.
For the purpose of this program, arts learning happens when participants are engaged in creating, performing, and/or responding to art in a disciplined and intentional way with a teaching artist. Arts learning is most effective as a sequential, in-depth process which may include imaginative thinking, problem-solving, goal setting, and teamwork. Quality arts learning experiences should lead to an increased understanding of the role that the arts play in daily life, improvements in communication skills, and a greater capacity for critical response. This is a competitive project grant program. Applicants are encouraged to use project grants strategically to enhance or expand service to Minnesotans, rather than expecting continued funding for the same activities year after year.
