Individual artists and their work are the foundation of our arts community. Working alone or in groups they pursue projects that develop their practice, advance creative thought, contribute to an art form and provide our community with a reflection of itself. Those projects are the research and development activity of the creative sector, feeding the greater arts ecosystem locally and for export.
Artist Project Grants are intended to invest in the specific projects of individual artists and artist collectives as they pursue their artistic and professional advancement.
Applications will be considered 3 times per year:
"Small grants" of up to $5,000 twice a year (February 15 and September 15)
"Large grants" of between $5,001 and $25,000 once a year (June 15)
When a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.
An artist or collective will normally only be eligible for one Artist Project Grant per year.
Applicants may not submit an unsuccessful project proposal to the next consecutive deadline within the Artist Project Grants program.
