SW MN Arts Council seeks board members and grant review panelists
BOARD MEMBERS: SMAC seeks a representative for Meeker county and Lincoln County to serve on it’s Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday evening at the SMAC office in Marshall to set policies, make final decisions on grant awards with input from grant review panels, share ideas and information from their representative counties, and to design programs that enable SMAC to best serve our communities.

GRANT REVIEW PANELISTS: Are you interested in being a part of bringing about arts funding in our Southwest Minnesota communities? If so, we’d love for you to consider being a grant review panelist for SMAC. For grant programs in fiscal year 2020 (July 2019 – June 2020), the SMAC Board of Directors seeks panels of artists, arts administrators, arts volunteers, and arts appreciators representing multiple artistic disciplines from throughout the SMAC geographic region.
As a grant review panelist, in addition to evaluating grant proposals, you will:
- Learn about the arts activities taking place in SW MN
- Discuss art and its impact on individuals and communities in our region
- Network with other regional artists and arts volunteers
- Weigh in on SMAC’s grant application process
- Receive free tickets to evaluate SMAC-funded arts activities.

A huge thank you to all the grant panelists who served in our 2018 fiscal year:
