The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s Next Step Fund, funded by the McKnight Foundation, provides project grants up to $5,000 to individual artists in any discipline for the purpose of career development and artistic achievement. Applicants may be at any stage of their career, but must demonstrate achievement in their artistic field and have a history of public presentation or community contribution. This is a highly competitive program and potential applicants are encouraged to attend a free grant workshop to learn about this grant opportunity and the program intent. The Arts Consortium of Carver County will host the January 8 workshop from 4 – 5:30 p.m. Registration is required through the MRAC (Metro Regional Arts Council) website.
The MRAC grant application deadline is January 27, 2020.
