Mini Arts Grant Workshop

Posted on December 2, 2017 – 11:37 am

The Portage Lake District Library will host Cynthia Cote, Director of the Copper Country Community Arts Center in Hancock, for a free informational workshop about mini-grants that are available for art projects on Thursday, December 7, at 6:00 p.m.


The Copper Country Community Arts Council (CCCAC) is the administrator for the Regional Re-granting program of the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The CCCAC facilitates funding opportunities for arts projects in the six counties of the Western Upper Peninsula: Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, Ontonagon, Gogebic, and Iron.


Mini-grants for Arts Projects provide up to $4000 for locally developed, high quality arts projects, which provide special opportunities to address local arts needs and increase public access to the arts. Mini-grants support a broad range of artistic expression from all cultures through projects which preserve, produce, or present traditional and contemporary arts.


Mini-grant dollars, matched 1.1 in cash/in-kind can be used for many types of arts activities such as exhibits, readings, performances, workshops, broadcasts, consultancies, commissions, festivals, restorations, pow wows, conferences, seminars, video and film productions and screenings, publications, and arts activities for students.


Non-profit organizations, schools, and municipalities from the six counties may apply. A panel comprised of knowledgeable individuals from each of the six counties evaluates all funding proposals. The review criterion includes artistic merit, sound planning and management, as well as community service. Geographic distribution, underserved populations, cultural diversity, and a variety of arts disciplines are considered when determining awards.
