Arts Education Mini-Grants (AE-MG) supply funds for arts education providers who have unanticipated short-term or one-day arts education projects. Projects should include hands-on learning experiences focused on performing, visual, traditional folk, and/or literary art for the participants. The program must be taught by a professional artist approved as a teaching artist by the Tennessee Arts Commission.
Applicants must be a nonprofit organization or government agency, library, or nonprofit arts organization. New this year: K-12 public schools are eligible to apply for AE-MG funds to carry out a short-term arts education project occurring after school or during out-of-school time. All applications must be submitted 30 days prior to the project start date. For more information, view the AE-MG Guidelines.
