Annual Reports, Plans, Needs Assessments

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council creates a summary Annual Report each calendar year on our services, exhibits, and grant programs.

Needs Assessment is an important part of planning and developing policy each two years.  There is a requirement that each Regional Arts Council complete a needs assessment every four years.  Our Council chooses to do continuous needs assessment within three questions asked on each application both for grants and exhibits. Every two years, we compile the results of these three questions and  our main Survey (listed below as SurveySummary 2017) that allows us to compare routine questions over the last six years.

Biennial Plan to State:

Our current NWMAC 2018-2019 Biennial Plan can be viewed.  This is a preliminary plan since the actual budget for 2018-2019 had not yet been determined by the Minnesota State legislature.   The plan includes five main priorities re-grant programs, showcasing, promotion, training/networking, and professional regional offices with full time staff and an active board of directors.
