Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative Small Grant Program Request for Proposals
CURA’s Artists Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (ANPI) provides small grants to artists of color and Native artists working in neighborhoods in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs. ANPI grants recognize the valuable role that artists and the arts play in the work of fostering neighborhood wellbeing, and are intended to support the leadership of artists in these efforts. This grant program is particularly focused on directly funding individual artists or groups of artists working to build a more equitable Twin Cities.
We are now accepting proposals for one-year support of artist driven projects.
The goal of the program is to identify and support compelling projects that artists have developed in response to their community’s specific challenges and opportunities.
Projects must demonstrate a clear commitment to a neighborhood or place, as shown by the relationship between that place’s community to the project’s development process and focus.
The request for proposals is open to individual artists of color and Native artists, or artist teams. Organizations may not apply, although they may partner with an artist or artist team who is leading the project. Proposals will be accepted until November 11, 2018 (end of the day). We have a total of $60,000 in grant dollars for 2019, with maximum grant awards of $15,000/project.
These funds are designated for one-time project support, and must be spent within one year. Funds will be disbursed around late March/early April 2019.
Applications are accepted until the end of the day (11:59 pm) on Sunday, November 11, 2018.
Final decisions will be made by early January 2018.

Crime Book Club – Death of a Rainmaker, Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join the Crime Book Club for a discussion of Death of a Rainmaker by Laurie Loewenstein. Get your copy at Moon Palace Books for 20% off! When a rainmaker is bludgeoned to death in the pitch-blackness of a colossal dust storm, small-town sheriff Temple Jennings shoulders yet another burden in the hard times of the 1930s Dust Bowl. The killing only magnifies Temple’s ongoing troubles: a formidable opponent in the upcoming election, the repugnant burden of enforcing farm foreclosures, and his wife’s lingering grief over the loss of their eight-year-old son. As the sheriff and his young deputy investigate the murder, their suspicions focus on a teenager, Carmine, serving with the Civilian Conservation Corps. The deputy, himself a former CCCer, struggles with remaining loyal to the corps while pursuing his own aspirations as a lawman. When the investigation closes in on Carmine, Temple’s wife, Etha, quickly becomes convinced of his innocence and sets out to prove it. But Etha’s own probe soon reveals a darker web of secrets, which imperil Temple’s chances of reelection and cause the husband and wife to confront their long-standing differences about the nature of grief. Laurie Loewenstein is the author of the best-selling novel, Unmentionables. An Ohio native, she currently lives in Columbia, Maryland. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=3944

Green Coffee Talk @ Peace Coffee, 3262 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Are you looking to “Go Green” or need help along our Green Journey? Come meet/collaborate wit other like-minded, Eco-friendly people!

Left Lane Cruiser, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations, & The Fret Rattles @ The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge, 3010 Minnehaha Ave • Doors 7:30pm | Music 8:30pm | 21+ | $12 Advance | $15 Day of Show
Left Lane Cruiser Indiana’s trash-blues outfit Left Lane Crusier is back supporting their most recent (2017) album of high-energy R&B. “Claw Machine Wizard” is a return to the band’s two man format, headed by slide guitar extraordinaire Freddy J IV, and backed by drumming machine Pete Dio. Left Lane Cruiser has been making records for over a decade, and along with their music being featured in many hit television series such as Banshee, Breaking Bad, and Nashville, they have been receiving critical acclaim across the globe.
Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations As a founding member of the critically-acclaimed progressive roots outfit Moreland and Arbuckle, vocalist/harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle has been working hard on the road for over a decade. After 15 years, 7 albums, and hundreds of shows across 23 countries, Moreland & Arbuckle have amicably gone their separate ways. As one door closes, another opens, and Arbuckle is now ready to explore a wide range of music with his new project, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations. A musician of vast appetites, he’s long held an appreciation for traditional American music in the vein of Charley Patton as well as the cross-pollinated sounds of The Band or Stax-style soul.
Fret Rattles Minneapolis-based Fret Rattles already have several fine rock records under their belt but, like the rest of this bill, are best enjoyed live. They are also the curators and visionaries behind this triple-threat live recording event. The band finds a more raw, stripped down approach to the music these days, happily wearing their influences on their sleeves.
Trivia Thursday: Serial killers @ Urban Forage Winery and Cider House, 3016 E Lake St • 7pm
OK. Let’s be clear. This is not about celebrating people who were clearly not good human beings. They were some of the worst. But this is October, a month when the darker side of human nature is acknowledged. And as such- for the third month of October- we have serial killer trivia. You asked for it. Here it is.
Yoga w/Dallas at CANDO • 6:30pm
Thursday Yoga is back at CANDO weekly w/Dallas!! This accessible class is designed to help students discover their personal practice in a supportive space. Rather than expecting students to conform to arbitrary shapes, my goal is to create opportunities for students to feel more relaxed and confident in their bodies, regardless of experience or physical mobility. Expect a class with dynamic sequencing, some mindfulness practice, and messaging that celebrates who you already are. All are welcome.
