May Lee Yang, the API Community Liaison for the Minnesota State Arts Board has passed this on.
Having received funding from the MN State Arts Board myself in the past, I think that for the right project, this IS an excellent opportunity. Check it out.
Here's a great grant opportunity for either artists of color or organizations who want to work with artists of color.
The MN State Arts Board is offering grants of up to $5,000 to help you improve your artistic career—whatever that may mean to you. Not relevant to you? Please help me out by passing it on to others.
Deadline is October 8, 2007!
Here are some things that may be helpful to know:
Short notice but there is a grant workshop tonight, September 18, 2007 at the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (995 University Avenue, St. Paul, MN) from 6-8 p.m.
I’m also available via phone, email, or face-to-face meetings.
Also know that you can look at past grants that were successful as well as those that weren’t so successful.
As a Community Liaison, I’m available to answer questions you may have. Take care!
