SEMAC Announces October Grant Application Deadline


Fri, Aug 23rd, 2013
Posted in All Arts & Culture

The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council announces a call for grant proposals in three categories. The postmark deadline is October 1, 2013.

SEMAC is a non-profit arts agency and is the State of Minnesota Arts Board-designated regional arts council for the counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, and Winona.

All proposed projects must take place between December 1, 2013 and November 30, 2014.

Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund Grants

Proposals for grants from the Arts & Cultural Heritage fund ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 are accepted from qualified applicants. A match of 20 percent is required in this category.

The Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund will support arts focused activities in three key areas: 1) Arts and Arts Access, 2) Arts Education, and 3) Arts and Cultural Heritage. SEMAC encourages applicants to research and develop proposals that incorporate two or more of the key areas with an emphasis on creating lasting partnerships among regional nonprofit arts organizations and other nonprofit groups. In addition to eligible arts organizations, nonprofits that do not have arts as a primary focus, such as schools, senior centers, community education, cultural groups and colleges are invited to apply.

Future funding of Arts and Cultural Heritage Grants depends on appropriate use of current funding. SEMAC urges arts organizations, non-arts organizations with an arts component, and government entities to apply. First-time applicants must attend a proposal drafting session. Three sessions will be held. To learn more or to sign up, email staff@semac.org or call the SEMAC office at 507-281-4848.

Presenter/Production Assistance Grants

Proposals for Presenter/Production grants offer funding up to $3,000 to qualified applicants. Matching funds are required.

Presenter Assistance grants are intended to help regional arts organizations and educational institutions sponsor appearances by touring artists or companies who have demonstrated high levels of artistic quality. These grants are not for local productions or artist residencies in schools.

Production Assistance grants support activities directly involved in the creation, performance, publication, and exhibition of art. The two distinct subcategories within Production Assistance grants .....
