The East Central Regional Arts Council (ECRAC) has scheduled upcoming grant information sessions for all artists (visual artists, writers, dancers, actors, videographers, potters, musicians, etc.) in Region 7E.

These sessions will include basic information about all ECRAC grant programs for artists, as well as recent changes to the grant application processes.  Region 7E is the east central Minnesota Counties of Chisago, Kanabec, Isanti, Mille Lacs, and Pine.  Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and have their permanent residence in the region for at least 6 months.

 If you have already attended a grant information session in the past, a refresher is always a good idea to keep you up to date with any new grant requirements and recent changes to the application processes.

Grant Info Sessions for all artists will be on Thursdays: July 26, 2018 at 5:30 pm; August 2, 2018 at 10 am; September 27 at 5:30 pm; and October 11, at 10 am.

These sessions will be held at the ECRAC office, 112 Main Ave S, Braham, MN. There is no fee to attend but advance registration is strongly encouraged. To register, please call the East Central Regional Arts Council office at (320) 396-2337 x 1, or email

These grant programs and activities are made possible with funds provided by The McKnight Foundation and thanks to Minnesota legislative appropriations from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
