MAC Grant Workshop in Springfield

MAC Grant

Join us this fall for our annual Grant Information Workshops, held in nine cities throughout the state October 22–December 3. The two-hour workshops cover essential information on Missouri Arts Council grants, both Annual and Express (except for Arts Education), for fiscal year 2021.

If your organization is Missouri-based and tax-exempt, and you have never applied for Missouri Arts Council funding or seek to improve your grant application, these free workshops are for you! Already a veteran? Please forward this email to an arts organization that could be interested in our funding!

What you will learn  

  • Who is eligible to apply
  • What the Missouri Arts Council funds
  • What grant programs are available
  • How the application and panel processes work
  • How to prepare support materials
  • How to strategically address narrative questions

FY2021 is from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. FY2021 is an on-year for these grant programs: Arts Education, Dance, Missouri Touring Performers, Organizations of Color, Theater, and Visual Arts. (Note: our grants are available only to organizations, not to individuals.)

Come and meet Missouri Arts Council staff. Learn about the nonpartisan, grassroots Missouri Citizens for the Arts. Connect with your local arts and arts advocacy communities. This is your opportunity to find resources and services with a personal touch!
