Mid-America Arts Alliance strengthens and supports artists, cultural organizations, and communities throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and beyond.

We achieve this primarily through our national traveling exhibition programs, innovative leadership development, and strategic grant making.

We are especially committed to enriching the cultural life of historically underserved communities by providing high quality, meaningful, and accessible arts and culture programs and services.

This cutting edge training program addresses the specific business needs and challenges of artists. Limited to 25 participants, artists gather once a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers. 

The final report is due to M-AAA within 30 days of the project's conclusion. Review of the complete final report allows for final grant payment processing to proceed.

Mid-America Arts Alliance, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, supports multiple funding programs, including the Artistic Innovations Grant Program which requires adjudication by a panel of arts professionals. 

Mid-America Arts Alliance is searching for leaders in the arts field to serve as panelists for the Artistic Innovations grant program. Review of materials followed by a review panel meeting takes place in April. The panel meeting will be held in a web-based format (via phone and computer). Panelists are not expected to travel; however, each panelist must be able to commit to independent review and evaluation of proposals in advance of the panel meeting, and up to 3-hours of panel discussion by conference call.
