Your Project Ideas + Our Funding = Great Persian Programs

Do you have a great idea for a project about Iranian art and culture that you would like to create? 

It could be:

  •  an art exhibition at a local art gallery
  • an open house at your art studio
  • a house concert
  • a poetry night
  • a storytelling night
  • a cooking class
  • a Persian dance party, with a DJ
  • something else?

If you have a great idea, the Twin Cities Iranian Culture Collective has some funding.  If your project is selected, we will cover your expenses,

and compensate you for your time. We will also work with you to make your project a success. We are looking for projects that will engage both Iranians and non-Iraniana.

We don’t have all the details worked out yet, but we hope to fund up to 10 projects, and we anticipate that most projects will have a budget of $3000 – $5000 – but those details are subject to change. If you are interested, please complete the form below. And if you have questions, please email us at We’ll be in touch.
