Forecast is offering mini-grants for public artists to create messages of hope during this challenging time.
The application is now open for 20 grants of $500 each.
Forecast asked artists how they can best help them and their communities NOW. In response, they reallocated $10,000 of their own resources to quickly provide mini-grants to public artists to safely create and share messages of hope within their communities—a much-needed act of solidarity in the face of these stark economic and health crises.
Forecast seeks to support artists based in Minnesota and the Native nations that share the same geography. Their goal is to get funds to artists as quickly as possible and all applicants will be notified by this Friday, April 10.
Apply by 9 pm this Wednesday, April 8! For more information and to apply visit here.
