Grants of up to $5,000 to Northeast Minnesota nonprofits, schools, and government agencies for arts activities in the Arrowhead region (excluding Duluth). Application drafts may be reviewed up to two weeks prior to the deadline. Workshops are scheduled for October 1 and 11. Funding will support artist-initiated activities, as well as arts-baed activities in their early years of development.

The purpose of the activity should be to do one or more of the following: encourage the development of an art form, stimulate the artistic growth of artists associated with an arts organization or arts discipline, advance the artistic growth of an arts organization, or present a variety of high quality arts experiences for regional audiences. Projects may be proposed in the following disciplines: visual arts, music, dance, theater, literature, film, video, and folk or ethnic art.

Rural and community arts activities should be collaborative efforts between community groups, artists, and/or the arts organizations and have a close relationship to a specific population or location, enabling applicants to produce or present arts activities which impact their group and the community they serve.
