Workshops & Assistance

SW MN Arts Council staff members are here to assist you, and we welcome any questions you may have at any point in the grant process.  We offer several options to connect, including grant support open office hours, scheduled meetings, and grantwriting workshops.

FY 2021 Grant Calendar

 

Grant Support Open Office Hours

SW MN Arts Council hosts grant support open office hours the second Tuesday of each month.  While we continue to take COVID-19 precautions, these open office hours will be virtual via GoToMeeting, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  You can use this time with SW MN Arts Council staff to talk through project ideas or get help with finding the right grant program, filling out your application, preparing work samples or budgets, or completing your final report.  Join the virtual meeting here.

As always, feel free to call (800-622-5284) or email us (info@swmnarts.org) any time with your questions if this option doesn’t work for you.
