Regional Arts Council to offer informational sessions

The East Central Regional Arts Council (ECRAC) is a Minnesota Regional Arts Council. The mission of ECRAC is to increase the arts and this is done primarily through the funding of grants to artists and also to organizations that sponsor arts activities.

During these grant information sessions, ECRAC Executive Director Mary Minnick-Daniels will offer information on the fiscal year 2014 ECRAC grant funding, grant applications, grant reviews and grant funding procedures. This is in preparation for the upcoming art grant application deadlines. The new application forms and information will be available at the workshops. The location will be the East Central Regional Arts Council office, 112 Main St. S, Braham.

There is no charge for these sessions, but preregistration is necessary. To register for any of these sessions contact the ECRAC office at 320-396-2337 or by emailing [email protected]
