An Operating Support or Community Arts Schools and Conservatories grantee is able to apply for an Arts Tour Minnesota grant, so long as it can describe how its proposed project expands upon past programming, allows the organization to provide new kinds of service, and enables it to serve a broader, more diverse, audience of Minnesotans.
The Series Presenter Support program was discontinued as of June 30, 2010. Organizations that have applied for funds and/or been funded in the Series Presenter Support program in the past are encouraged to seek funding for their future activities through the Arts Tour Minnesota program.
The applicant must provide at least 20 percent of the total project’s cash expenses from other sources, and may receive up to 80 percent of the total project’s cash expenses in combined support from the Minnesota State Arts Board and one of more or more the state’s regional arts councils.
