The East Central Regional Arts Council (ECRAC) serves Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine counties. The mission of ECRAC is to increase the arts and this is done primarily through the funding of grants to artists and also to organizations that sponsor arts activities. ECRAC Executive Director Mary Minnick-Daniels will offer information on ECRAC grant applications, grant reviews, and grant funding procedures. This is in preparation for the upcoming art grant application deadlines. Application forms and information will be available at the seminar. The grant workshop is Thursday, Feb. 2, 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the East Central Regional Arts Council office, 112 Main Street South in Braham.
