Art Events Are Back!

Now is the time to plan for the future of the arts!

As you may know, the East Central Regional Arts Council's mission is to support the arts and bring the life enhancing values they afford to all Region 7E residents. Region 7E is the East Central Minnesota Counties of Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine. This mission is accomplished through grant programs and special initiatives for artists, arts organizations, and other groups producing art projects or events. ECRAC is a nonprofit corporation and is one of 11 independent Minnesota Regional Arts Councils. Our vision is that all Region 7E residents have the opportunity to participate, appreciate, create, and invest in the arts.

Currently we are planning for the future of the arts here and hope you will assist by completing our survey. Every 4 years ECRAC surveys grant applicants, grantees, and artists involved in the IMAGE Art Show. We also reach out to others in the Region to help develop and hone services provided.  Please complete the survey by December 31, 2022.

 Your input is needed and appreciated! Plus, you can

enter to win a $300 incentive for participating!
