[Opportunity] Minnesota's FY 2015 Artist Initiative Deadlines Approaching
The Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative program supports and assists artists at various stages in their careers.
It encourages artistic development, nurtures artistic creativity, and recognizes the contributions individual artists make to the creative environment of the state of Minnesota. Grants will be awarded for career building and for the creative development of artists. Some artists may choose to request funds to create new work, but that isn't a requirement of the program. The grants range from $2,000 to $10,000.
Artists working in all artistic disciplines—dance, media arts, music, photography, poetry, prose, theater, and two- and three-dimensional visual arts—may apply. The Minnesota State Arts Board uses an online application now.
There are three deadlines for the FY 2015 Artist Initiative grant application, depending on discipline:
Literary arts; poetry and prose: June 13, 2014
Performing arts; dance, music, and theater: July 11, 2014
Visual arts; media arts, photography, and visual arts: Friday, August 1, 2014
