The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is one of eleven regional arts councils in the State of Minnesota. The regional arts council system provides a decentralized mechanism for the distribution of arts funding.
The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council offers granting programs, information services, technical assistance, and arts programs to residents of the seven counties of northwestern Minnesota. The seven-county area includes Kittson, Marshall, Norman, Pennington, Polk, Red Lake and Roseau Counties.
The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council developed the Northwest Artist Fellowship program with McKnight Foundation funding to provide financial support to artists committed to advancing their careers.
