Did you know that there are regional grants and services available for artists like you? The Lake Region Arts Council wants to help you find them.

Did you know about the  $5,000 Fellowship Grants that you could use to take workshops, travel, or buy artists supplies?

There are many more artist grants statewide that are available for artists.

Artists in the Lakes region are encouraged to take a survey to help LRAC know how to better connect you with the resources available.

Visual artists, musicians, dancers, actors, writers, crafters, digital artists, designers and multidisciplinary artists are all eligible for grants, as well as other resources, and are urged to participate in this survey.

For more information, contact Lake Region Arts Council director Maxine Adams. She can be reached at 218-739-5780, toll free in Minnesota at 800-262-2787, or via email at
