Cultural Traditions in the Arts Grants can support events and activities that represent the diverse ethnic and cultural arts traditions in our state. These funds are specifically for building bridges between all Minnesotans through arts and culture by ensuring that Minnesotans are able to experience first hand our diverse cultures through the work of artists and arts organizations in the state. These grants offer funding for a variety of arts projects and programming including costs associated with public art, arts festivals, engagement of guest artists, arts field trips, workshops, exhibitions, presentations, or performances. Arts activities proposed for funding must be open to and accessible by the public and have a strong community component. Non-profits, arts organizations, schools, community education programs, institutions of higher learning, local city, town, county government or tribal offices, or groups formed for nonprofit purposes with a fiscal sponsor can apply for grants up to $3,000 (with no cash match needed) to fund arts projects that will benefit the residents of Beltrami, Hubbard, Clearwater, Lake of the Woods, or Mahnomen Counties.
