The 2012 Travel and Study Grant Program will be offered in Dance, Film and Video, and Literature. Grants will be awarded to emerging artists who create new work (choreographers, film and video directors, poets, spoken word artists, and fiction and creative nonfiction writers). Minnesota-based executive and program administrators working for nonprofit arts organizations in dance, film and video, and literature are also eligible to apply. The deadline for applications is February 27, 2012.
The program supports such activities as research leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations, participation in specific training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, investigating artistic work outside of Minnesota or New York City, and dialogue on aesthetic issues.
The 2013 Travel and Study Grant Program will be offered in Music, Theater, and Visual Arts, with an application deadline in February of 2013.
Application guidelines will be available on the Foundation’s website by December 1, 2011.
The 2012 Program is supported by the Art and Martha Kaemmer Fund of the HRK Foundation and the Jerome Foundation.
