Mint Artists Guild helps emerging artists grow their business and professional skills through workshops, experiential learning and a new summer jobs program. Now Mint needs to grow too with funding from a few foundations or businesses that give grants and other support.
We are seeking someone who knows how to research and write clearly and passionately - and will write one to three grant applications for Mint in 2017. If you want to write more, of course, that will be welcome. Previous experience with grant applications is helpful but not required.
Or if you are more comfortable editing the grant application or helping research information and opportunities, that is valuable too. Our co-founder / director is a writer and journalist so we already have some writing talent on board - though she's pretty busy with other Mint activities too!
The grants will help us grow our Paint Detroit with Generosity campaign and our summer jobs initiative, and to pay artists and professional staff who work with us. They may help launch new programs and ideas - and we definitely want to create some community murals and mosaics once we get funding! Like our herbal namesake, we are fresh and spread out quickly.
