Planning a Successful Project

Watch the webinar

We strongly encourage you watch the webinar before putting your project together. This webinar will review the basics of Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites, how to build a strong partnership with DNR or Historic Site staff, how to design an engaging participatory project, and tips for writing a strong application.

The webinars are posted below:

Use the resources

Seriously. They will make your project stronger, even if you’ve already received an Arts in the Parks and Historic Sites grant before.

Application Review

Each eligible application will be reviewed and scored by a conflict-free panel comprised of both arts, historic site, and environmental professionals. The panel review will be open to the public and will be recorded. All recordings will be posted on the IAC website.  Applicants are invited and encouraged to attend to hear feedback. The quality of the recorded session is not guaranteed but will be posted and made publically available. Applicants are invited as observers only and cannot lobby or address the panel on behalf of their applications before, during or after the panel meeting.

The panel review will be based on the number of applications received and type of projects or disciplines. Each individual artist will choose their discipline within the application. If you are a folk artist, there is an additional question you can choose to respond in order to determine eligibility for the folk discipline. Artists with disabilities may apply in any arts discipline. Applicants will be paneled with other access applications and will compete for the same funding source.
