Mid America Arts Alliance

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 relies upon arts leaders in the field to serve as panelists for the Artistic Innovations grant program. Review of proposal materials followed by a panel meeting typically takes place in April. The panel meeting is 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 discussion by conference call.

Submitted interest forms will be held for consideration for two years. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Christine Dotterweich Bial, Director of Grant Programs at (816) 421-1388, ext. #227 or
