The Arts Partnership Awards NDHRFF18 a City Art Partnership Grant.
The Arts Partnership has awarded the 2018 North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival a City Arts Partnership (CAP) Grant. CAP Grants support non-profit arts and culture organizations and other non-profits proposing arts projects in the Metro area. The CAP program is funded by the cities of Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. Sanford Health provides Sanford Arts Partnership Merit Awards, given to organizations doing exemplary work in the arts and cultural arenas in our community.
The Human Family was one of 27 different non-profits benefiting from the City Arts Partnership Grant program. “We’re excited to have been selected as part of the program,” said Sean Coffman, Executive Director of the Human Family. “The arts play an important role in societal dialogues, and an exhibition such as this helps to bring attention to a number of different important conversations.”
In 2018, the North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival will travel between Bismarck, Fargo and Grand Forks. The $1,000 CAP grant provided by the Arts Partnership will be used specifically for the Fargo exhibition dates of the festival.
