  • Missouri Arts Council Grant Writing Workshops
    Interested in receiving funding from the Missouri Arts Council?

    We have the workshop for you! Learn how to navigate the Missouri Arts Council grant process by joining us this fall for the annual Grant Information Workshops. These workshops are designed for new applicants or those who are in need of basic help with the Missouri Arts Council grant process. This workshop focuses on monthly and annual grant programs. While arts education grants will not be specifically addressed, much of the general information applies.

    FY2016 is an on-year for these grant programs: Arts Education, Community Arts (Operating and Project Support), Electronic Media Arts, Established Institutions, Festivals, Folk Arts, Literature, Mid-Sized Arts Organizations, Multidiscipline, and Music. The deadline for applications for annual grants for FY2016 is February 23, 2015.

    What is new this year?
    For grant applications for FY2016, all support materials must be submitted as an electronic attachment within the grant application. Physical support materials will no longer be accepted. During the workshop, we will direct a special focus on creating, formatting, and attaching effective support materials.

    What else will I learn?
    • Who is eligible to apply
    • What grant programs are available
    • How your application is evaluated

    Who should attend?
    Eligible organizations (Missouri-based, tax-exempt only) looking for funding for arts projects who are not familiar with the Missouri Arts Council application process, or who have previously applied and not received satisfactory panel scores. Those who have previously applied and are familiar with the process do not need to attend.

    Is there a cost?
    This workshop is free, but we do ask that attendees register using the links to the right to make sure there will be enough room for everyone.
