COMPAS is a Minnesota nonprofit arts organization. It lets people experience and create the arts by connecting communities, cultures and artists. COMPAS sparks children’s imaginations, brings creativity into the lives of older adults, and inspires people to create through participatory arts program with professional artists, all of which are held onsite at schools, hospitals, senior living centers and other community gathering spots.
The COMPAS artist-roster includes over 100 individuals and ensembles from 40 different cultures and ethnic backgrounds in just about every art form, including visual arts, performing arts, music, writing, spoken word, dance and more! www.compas.org.
A Central Minnesota Arts Board Rostered artist has completed a six-month training in preparation for working in a residency program to support educators by making connections between their art form and the Minnesota State Academic standards in the arts, integrating the arts with concepts in other subject areas, professional development for educators, and working with specific student populations.
TARP Artists in the will submit a residency plan to the CMAB for funding up to $1,500 with a maximum of $300 in reimbursement for the cost of supplies.
Due to a change in residence, Heidi is no longer a part of the CMAB region, therefore unable to access TRAIR funding. She is still available for traditional artist in residency grants (AIR).
