Region 2 Arts Council is hosting a “Board Boot Camp,” presented by MAP for Nonprofits, on Monday, June 26 from 9 am – 12 pm at the Northwest Minnesota Foundation in Bemidji. This is a program that we have heard requested frequently, and will be very beneficial to the Board members from your arts organization. Jennifer Kramm from MAP for Nonprofits will be the presenter.
Join Executive Director Laura Seter on May 11, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for a presentation of Region 2 Arts Council’s Biennial Plan for fiscal years 18 -19. We will be meeting in the Corner Studio at Rail River Folk School, 303 Railroad Street SW, Bemidji.
Attendees will see the ways in which the needs assessment results compiled from the past two years have been embedded in a new set of goals, strategies, and outcomes for the coming two years. Revised grants and grant deadlines will also be shared during this meeting. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Feedback on the Biennial Plan is welcome.

Arts Project Grants are open to nonprofits, schools, government or tribal offices, or community education programs. These grants offer funding for a variety of art projects including costs related to performances or exhibitions, engagement of guest artists, public art projects, and artists-in-residence.
Funded arts projects must benefit the residents of Beltrami, Hubbard, Clearwater, Lake of the Woods, or Mahnomen Counties.
This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
