Join us for another MNFEA Coffee Break and tasty networking session!
Our speaker will be Rina Rossi, Program Officer with the Minnesota State Arts Board - a state agency that stimulates and encourages the creation, performance and appreciation of the arts in our state.
Rina will go over deadlines, grant amounts, who can apply, what funds may be used for, how to file an application, and some examples of past projects funded in the program. She will also review next steps for anyone who is interested in submitting an application in for the current cycle.
