Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council, an initiative of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, is now accepting Project Support grant proposals in its autumn round of funding for arts-related projects. Grants will provide financial support up to $3,000 but will not exceed 50% of a project’s budget. Deadline for submission is September 20, 5 p.m.
In addition to financial support, Rimon may provide accepted proposals with assistance by:
· Facilitating a community planning process and assistance in the project’s implementation by helping to secure funding and developing collaborative partners for the project.
· Providing marketing and outreach assistance to Jewish community institutions, arts organizations, artists and audiences.
· Conducting research and planning to connect both artists and art presenters with the Jewish community.
For a project to be considered, it must meet Rimon’s mission and its goals. Rimon seeks to promote and enhance Jewish identity through arts and culture, support arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes and to assist the greater Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts.
The Rimon Arts Fund has allocated nearly $193,000 to 99 artists and institutions since the Project Support funding program began in 2005.
