The NWMAC is has extended our deadline for individuals to ask for $1,500 grants.  The deadline now is February 10!

Support for Individual Artist Grants comes from the McKnight Foundation.

Public Art Projects — Due February 10

The NWMAC would like to fund some public art projects.  Do you have experience with Public Art? Let us know by February 10 if you are interested in projects in our area.  We will be gathering information from interested artists, including examples of your work and budgets. We plan to share this information with interested organizations like cities and schools.  Let’s create some public art!

Opportunity to influence arts programming in NW Minnesota — We are updating our Biennial Plan

It is time for the NWMAC to update our Biennial Plan for FY22-23. We need your feedback and ideas!

We will be asking you to take time to share your experience with our programs and your needs as an artist.

We will be posting a draft biennial plan and then holding a public meeting in late February to gather input. Stay tuned for details. Can’t make the meeting? We also welcome emails or other forms of communication that work best for you.

This is an opportunity to influence the arts in our region!
