For my colleagues in Minnesota, this is a friendly reminder of the following grants coming up:
Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership Grant: August 22nd.
MN Playwrights Center Many Voices Fellowship: August 29th
Creativity In Motion: August 30th. HIGHLY competitive, $40K Award. Only offered once every 2 years for a project NOT completed but in clear progress.
Archibald Bush Artist Fellowship: Deadlines will be posted in September.
Puffin Foundation: New guidelines available in September. Take careful notice of the disciplines that will be eligible however.
John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship: September 15th.
MRAC Community Arts Grant: October 6th.
Although it's a little far ahead in late June keep an eye out for the COMPAS Community Art Program.
June will most likely be the deadline for the Soros Open Society Documentary Photography Project. This one looks like a good one but photographers will need to start building up a credible body of work to apply.Photographers should also check out the Ultimate Eye Foundation and its two highly competitive $5k grants.
Painters should check out the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. No deadlines, but you need to show need.
Keep on top of these. They're really good opportunities.
