The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council’s mission is to facilitate and encourage local arts development. This mission statement grows from a conviction that the arts improve the quality of life in the region.
What We Fund
ARAC awards grants to individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations in the Arrowhead region of Minnesota. We are one of eleven Regional Arts Councils in the state of Minnesota. Our grant funding comes from an appropriation by the MN state legislature, and from the McKnight Foundation. Additional funding comes from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
The ARAC office announces a new position:
The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council is seeking applications for a Grants Manager.
