The Five Wings Arts Council announced that artists, non-profit arts organizations, community groups, schools and government agencies in Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena Counties are invited to apply for financial support of arts projects that will enhance the quality of life in our region. The next deadline for grant applications is Jan. 16.

Individual artists may apply for support for either apprentice- or artisan-level grants. Organizations may apply for general operating, capital support and community arts access project grants. Schools may apply for funding to assist school art projects. Small community grants are available for short term projects or for first time applicants. Additional funds may be used for organizations seeking non-profit status and for board and professional development opportunities.
