Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative Grant Info Session

Date and time: 
August 9, 2011 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

WHO: Artists in the Twin Cities metro area who are interested in collaborating with community based organizations to strengthen neighborhoods

WHAT: An info session to learn more about CURA's Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (ANPI) grant opportunities

The cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are increasingly diverse. This creates new challenges for community based organizations to assure that resident voices are heard and new leaders are supported to build strong communities. Artists as the drivers of arts activity can build social relationships among diverse residents and stimulate innovative problem solving. The ANPI program supports effective partnerships with individual artists and community based organizations to engage residents who are traditionally underrepresented, e.g. youth and immigrants, and to develop innovative community engagement approaches to address community issues.

Three grants up to $10,000 will be awarded to successful partnership applicants.

Letters of interest are due by September 1st, 2011. Promising projects will be invited to submit a full application due by October 17th, 2011.

RSVP: Email Sara Bielawski (BIEL0032@umn.edu) with your name and phone number.

Contact Jeff Corn (jcorn@umn.edu or 612-625-0744) or Margaret Kaplan (mkaplan@umn.edu or 612-624-2300).
