The Arts Learning grant program provides grants of up to $10,000 for arts learning activities in any arts discipline to communities within the seven-county metro area: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington Counties. Grant requests must outline specific activities that may include related costs for artists and personnel, supplies, equipment rental, and other expenses necessary to carry out the project. This program is intended to serve as a catalyst for innovative projects in which organizations provide opportunities for Minnesotans of all ages and experiences over an extended period of time to develop knowledge, skills, and understanding of the arts. The arts learning opportunities can be single-discipline or multidisciplinary arts and can occur in a broad range of venues. The focus of these projects must be on the arts learner and not on a final presentation or community engagement.
Please read the guidelines before you apply. The application will be activated six weeks before each deadline.
