The Artistic Innovations Grant Program supports the creation of new, original works of art by eligible in-region artists and organizations. Applications will be assessed for artistic merit and artistic excellence.
Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA) intends to make awards that encourage the spirit of experimentation and exploration and benefit a broad constituency. Awards will be made across the six-state M-AAA region, with at least two grants awarded per state (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas). This program will disburse matching grants of up to $15,000 to no fewer than 12 grantees.
Grants through Artistic Innovations are provided through generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
