Arts Midwest is committed to Midwestern communities, large and small, through grant-making, creative programming, and leadership training.

What a year it’s been! In 2019, we ran 9 programs to provide performing arts experiences, arts funding, and leadership training to arts professionals regionally and nationally. Through those programs we:

  • Brought the joy of art to 9,300 communities
  • Connected 754,000 youths and adults to arts programming
  • Trained 1,100 leaders and
  • Awarded over $2.4 million in grants

We are grateful to our community partners, sponsors, donors, funders, and grantees for making our work possible and understanding the power of creativity to build bridges, inspire curiosity, and create joy.

Please join us in supporting joy and creativity across the Midwest in 2020 and beyond by making a gift today.
