Our Next Deadline
SEMAC announces a call for proposals by Individual Artists. All proposed projects must begin no earlier than September and be completed within twelve months, culminating with a Capstone Event that is accessible and open to the public. Online Applications will be available throughout the month of June with a July 1, 2018 Submission Deadline.
Individual Artist Grants
To encourage the development of entirely original artistic works, SEMAC offers two distinct grants for individual artists: Advancing artist grants recognize, reward, and encourage outstanding individual artists and provide some financial support to enable them to continue their work. Emerging artist grants offer small but critical support for specific projects by developing artists from all disciplines who are committed to advancing their work.
- Proposals will be accepted from individual artists 18 or older who are full-time residents of the SEMAC Region.
- Advancing artists may request a maximum award of $5,000. The maximum award for emerging artists is $2,500.
- No matching funds are required.
- Offered twice a year; the next deadline will be February 1, 2019.
The individual artist grant program is generously supported by the McKnight Foundation of Minneapolis.
