Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -We know you "rural artists" are out there, and there is money for you.

Just ask.

The Lake Region Arts Council serves artists in an eight county area of rural, west-central Minnesota.

But a survey is now available on-line at the arts council, so the state of Minnesota can determine why more rural artists are not applying for grants and other money that is out there for them.

Artists, musicians, filmmakers, writers, crafters and more are eligible.

Jacinta Macheel, Lake Region Arts Council: “And just start asking the questions there are people out there who want to help you that is their mission and they want to see you succeed.”

We have made a link to that survey at wday.com

An event in August will gather regional artists in Fergus Falls to educate them more about the grant writing process.
