Come As  You Are to a Central MN Arts Huddle

Our industry faces a set of challenges many never even thought to anticipate. CMAB’s job is to listen and plan with you to support the needs of our arts communities

Much has changed- and continues to change.
Collectively we have experienced shock, confusion, disruption and sometimes panic and despair.

We’d like to hear what you have done to adapt. Or what you haven’t figured out yet.
We’ll offer some examples of what we are seeing, and save plenty of space for participants to share

Informal virtual meetings will be held via Zoom every First and Third Thursday of the month. First Thursday’s will focus on Individual Artists and the Third Thursday’s will be for Arts Organizations.

All are welcome to attend! Come when you’re able, stay as long as you like. Plan to listen, bring something to share or ask a question of the group.

CMAB Grant Writing Webinar

CMAB Program officer, Heather Allen, presents a 4-session webinar designed to take you through the steps of planning an arts grant proposal. The guidance and resources you receive can be used to apply for grant funds in support of your artistic vision.

  • Learn about common mistakes grant writers make and how to avoid them
    Spend time gathering contacts and resources that will make your project a success
    Build or strengthen the plan for your creative endeavor
    Receive guidance and support
  • This course may serve as an introduction to grant writing, if you have never applied for a grant before, but will also benefit those who already have applied for grants in the past. Help us to make meaningful and lasting contributions to Region 7W’s cultural fabric.
