ARTS EDUCATION MINIGRANTS
Fisher Arts Education Minigrants
Recommend a Teacher for Funding
Are you connected to an educator in Wayne County who works with pre-K through 3rd grade students? Are they a champion for the arts in their classroom? If the resounding answer is yes, then recommend them for a Fisher Arts Education Minigrant.
CultureSource expects to make 6-10 minigrants in 2023 from a total funding amount of $9000.
Minigrants of $500-$1,500 will be made to schools for teachers to use for the following:
- Arts equipment and supplies for purchasing new music stands, repairing instruments, buying more drying racks, paintbrushes, a couple of clarinets, and more.
- Field trips to help support bus and transportation costs of field trips to places of artistic and/or cultural significance in the region, such as a tour of the Ford Piquette Plant, visit to the Arab American National Museum, or school day performance at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
- A combination of both!
To be eligible for a Fisher Arts Education Minigrant, the following criteria must be met:
- The recommended teacher must work for an accredited school, geographically located in Wayne County. This program is open to accredited pre-K—12 institutions, public or non-public schools, private schools, homeschools, school districts, intermediate school district/regional educational service agencies or accredited Head Start program.
- The recommended teacher must work with pre-K through 3rd grade students.
- The recommended teacher must use arts education practices in their classroom; eligible teachers include music teachers, visual arts teachers, school librarians, educators who would like to take a culturally-focused field trip, and more.
- Preference will be given to teachers who are recommended by a CultureSource Member Organization. To see if your organization is a member of CultureSource, please visit our Membership Directory.
