Find Funding | Artistic Innovations | FY15 Grants


Artistic Innovations is a grant program that supports the creation of new work. It also is designed to encourage experimentation and collaboration, and engage audiences throughout M-AAA’s region (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas).

With generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, M-AAA distributes grants of up to $15,000 to underwrite the direct expenses related to the art-making process and the public premier of these works.

Artistic Innovations grants are available to artists and nonprofit arts organizations working in all disciplines. After conducting four pilot project grants in 2012, M-AAA launched Artistic Innovations in early 2013. In the program's first year, we awarded 20 grants in theatre, storytelling, filmmaking, dance, visual arts, and music.

For FY15 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015), the grant-making process has begun. Letters of Intent (LOI) were due on Jan. 24, 2014. In mid-February, a group selected from the LOIs will be invited to submit a full proposal, which were due March 24. Grant recipients will be notified in June.
