One of the projects, called “Haircuts for Change,” will focus on “healing and beauty practices in the South Minneapolis."

The city of Minneapolis announced Monday that it has approved $100,000 in grants “for urgently needed artist-led creative healing in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the subsequent community uprisings.”

“The first funding priority was given to Black artists working with communities who have historically experienced the stress and trauma of racial discrimination,” said a city press release.

The city’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy awarded 10 projects with a share of the grant dollars, which “also recognize the unpaid labor of artists and designers as they respond to multiple health and racism emergencies to support community needs,” according to the release.
