COVID-19: Support for Minnesota's Arts Community

Message to the arts community about COVID-19

As our state responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know that the Minnesota State Arts Board is concerned about the health and safety of everyone who works in the arts sector, and the health and safety of the participants, audience, and community members who we serve. We also are concerned about the physical, emotional, and economic toll the pandemic is having on the individuals and organizations who make up our extraordinary arts community.

Please visit our  COVID-19 Relief page for information and resources.

 

Upcoming Opportunities

Operating Support provides general support to high quality, established arts organizations that produce, present, or exhibit works of art; to organizations that provide a broad range of services to artists; and to community arts schools and conservatories that make arts learning available to Minnesotans of all ages and abilities.

Open call for grant application advisory reviewers

The Minnesota State Arts Board relies on the generous involvement of Minnesota citizens to evaluate artistic activities and review grant applications to help determine which will be recommended to receive funding. This involvement, and the insights advisory reviewers bring, are the vital foundation for the Arts Board's grant decisions each year.

For this reason, hundreds of people–ranging from individuals who don't work in the arts, but have knowledge or passion for the arts, to individuals who have experience with Minnesota nonprofits in paid or volunteer positions, to professionals working in the arts–are needed to experience arts activities and review applications remotely, ongoing.

Find out if this is the right fit for you, visit  Grant Application Reviewer Opportunities.

Promoting Appreciation for the Role of Arts in Health and Wellness in the Twin Cities

Promoting Appreciation for the Role of Arts in Health and Wellness in the Twin Cities is a pilot study that qualitatively explores Americans' current thinking about the connection between arts and health, and their responses to communications about this topic. Conversations with a diverse cross-section of individuals in the Twin Cities provide important insights into how a conversation about the arts-health connection may play out at broader scales, and the potential of this focus to attract new engagement with and support for the arts. The pilot study was conducted as a strategic partnership among Topos, Metris Arts Consulting, and Americans for the Arts.
