SEMAC announces February 1 grant application deadline


Fri, Nov 2nd, 2012
Posted in All Arts & Culture

The Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council announces a call for grant proposals in three categories. Postmark deadline is February 1, 2013. All projects must take place between April 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014.

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.

Artists in Education Grants

The Artists in Education category is intended to support artist residencies in school within the eleven-county SEMAC region. A residency is an interactive arts activity involving students, teachers, and artists. Residencies provide young people with a direct arts experience with artists. Residencies also encourage professional development of artists by providing a unique employment experience and audience contact. Residencies must be at least one full day up to five full school days, in length, and be based upon a well-defined project. Residencies must culminate in a capstone event that is accessible to the public.

Applications will be accepted from public or non-religious private school within the SEMAC region. Grants in this category have an upper limit of $2,000 and no matching funds are required. All proposed residencies must take place between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014.

General Operating Support Grants

General operating support is designed to strengthen and stabilize arts organizations with operating expenses of less than $150,000 in the previous year. The fiscal year, or accounting period for which funding is requested, must not begin before April 1, 2013, and must conclude within one calendar year.

In lieu of the single capstone event required for other grant categories, applications should include a schedule of all events planned during the covered time period.

Proposals for organizational development will be accepted from eligible arts organizations that have been programming for a minimum of three years. Colleges and universities are ineligible. The maximum amount for this grant is $4,000. No match is required.

McKnight Individual Artist Grants

Proposals will be accepted from individual artists to encourage the development of entirely original work in two distinct subcategories: the established artist grant and the emerging artist grant. No matching f .....
