Madison Arts Commission Arts Grants Workshops

January 24, 2013

The City of Madison distributes funds to Madison artists and non-profit organizations through the Madison Arts Commission's annual grant programs. Project Grants provide up to $3,000 for performances, exhibitions or events that enrich the cultural lives of Madison citizens. ArtWORKS! Grants provide up to $5,000 for extracurricular arts-based educational programming. New guidelines will be posted by Friday, February 15, 2013. Friday, March 15, 2013 is the deadline to apply for a Project or artWORKS! Grant.

Thinking of applying? The Madison Arts Commission invites you to attend a MAC grant writing Workshop led by Commissioner Leslee Nelson and Program Administrator Karin Wolf.

There is no cost for this one-hour workshop intended to give you a brief introduction to MAC's grants process, review our updated guidelines, answer your grant related questions, and describe the panel review of your application (workshop does not cover the BLINK or Signature grants).

The same session will be repeated at two different dates/times, Monday, February 25, 2013, from 6:30-7:30pm OR Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from Noon-1:00pm both workshops will be held in room 260 of the Madison Municipal Building, 215 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. All are invited, but new applicants are especially encouraged to attend.
