Greater Lansing artists and arts organizations receive 2023 funding

The Arts Council Greater Lansing announces the FY2023 Michigan Arts and Culture Council (MACC) round-two grant funding totaling $9,320 to be distributed to area artists and arts and culture organizations in the Greater Lansing Region. This funding support is made available through MACC’s Minigrant Program and provides support for professional development, programming and projects. The Arts Council is pleased to offer these grants in two rounds each year, allowing for diversity in applications and opportunities to apply.

“Administering these MACC grants that support our region’s creative learning and endeavors is something that we are so proud to do each year,” said Arts Council executive director, Meghan Martin. “MACC’s Minigrant program provides important and much-needed funds to our Greater Lansing arts and cultural organizations and artists, offering them the opportunity to grow in their field of expertise and then share that back out to our community, making for a richer arts and culture experience for us all,” said Martin.

The MACC Minigrants assist grantees in covering costs for projects, supplies, conferences and workshop fees as well as other work support. Round-two 2023 grants were awarded through each of the following program initiatives:

MACC Professional or Organizational Development (POD) Minigrant funding totaling $5,320 for 2023 was awarded to the following recipients: Chen-Yu Huang; Lansing Symphony Orchestra; Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art; Amanda Ward

MACC Arts Project Minigrants funding totaling $4,000 was awarded to Capitol Harp Ensemble

“We are extremely grateful to MACC for their support of arts and culture in our region,” said membership and program manager Taylor Haslett. “Granting these dollars is an important part of the Arts Council’s goal to provide opportunities for our area creatives, and we happily congratulate all of this year’s round-two recipients.”
