    Arts Council Services

    The Arts Council offers consulting with individuals and organizations on such topics as grant writing, marketing, and board development. We provide technical assistance as well as referrals.

    Before each grant deadline, the Arts Council holds a workshop to explain the grant’s specifications. We also offer workshops on a variety of arts administration areas, such as board development and accounting for nonprofit organizations. See our Workshop Page for dates and times.

    If you have any questions regarding the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo's grants, please contact the Kristen Chesak by calling (269) 342-5059 or by email at
