Arts in Afterschool

The ND Afterschool Network, in collaboration with ND Council on the Arts, is pleased to offer funding to afterschool and other out-of-school time programs up to $2,000 to increase opportunities for youth in grades K-12 to engage in arts programming during the 2023-2024 school year.
Our goal with this funding is to provide meaningful arts engagement through community involvement and partnerships. Applicants are encouraged to think creatively about your activity or project. Projects can include a wide variety of arts, including visual, performance, photography, filmmaking, design, music, architecture, and more. Proposed activities must include direct engagement with an artist or arts institution, which may include a teaching artist, community artist, local theater, museum, or other arts entity. This funding is intended to help spark the potential for ongoing collaboration.
The ND Afterschool Network has collaborated with ND Council on the Arts to provide Arts in Afterschool Funding. Since the 2020-2021 school year, 42 grants have been awarded with an impact to 7,711 youth across North Dakota!

All 2023-2024 funding has been allocated. Check back for availability in 2024-2025!
