FY22 Fall Grant Workshops

From Jared Morrison, Director of Performing Arts –

The Commission is getting set to launch its annual fall series of grant workshops on October 13 at 10:00 a.m. CT with Grants 101, an in-depth webinar highlighting many of the Commission’s programs and activities. Those attending this virtual workshop will learn about funding opportunities – including the new non-matching Special Opportunities Covid-19 Arts Resilience grant – application requirements, and how to manage a grant. In addition, program directors will share tips and tricks, including best practices, and field questions from attendees.

For those unable to participate live, the webinar will be recorded and put on the Commission’s website for on-demand viewing.

Following Grants 101, program staff will deliver a series of 6 in-depth workshop webinars, each focusing on a different Commission program with guest speakers joining us from each workshop’s featured region of our state.
