Minnesota: Partners in Arts Participation Grants

Partners in Arts Participation is a new pilot program of the Minnesota State Arts Board (MSAB) that awards nonmatching grants of $5,000 – $25,000 to health and human-service organizations to integrate the arts into their services. Grantees—either nonprofit or tribal entities with programming related to physical or mental health, substance abuse, food security, job training, affordable housing, immigration, homelessness and other issues affecting well-being—may use the funds to bring the arts to their facilities or to bring their constituents to off-site arts experiences. The underwritten arts programming may exist a priori, like a play by a touring group, or may be tailored to address the specific the needs of the grantee and its constituents. Grants funds may be used for ticket costs, artist and organization fees, and other expenses related to realizing an arts-in-health-care project, such as transportation and child care. The program aims to increase the number of arts opportunities for Minnesotans of all ages, abilities, economic backgrounds, cultural heritages and geographic areas. To learn more, contact MSAB Executive Director Sue Gens.
