welcome - Edmonton Arts Council

Artists at Work. 

Individual artists and their work are the foundation of our arts community. Working alone or in groups you pursue projects that develop your practice, advance creative thought, contribute to an art form and provide our community with a reflection of itself. Your projects are the research and development activity of the creative sector, feeding the greater arts ecosystem locally and for export.

Application deadline: July 4th
When this date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day. 

Project Grants for Individual Artists are intended to support the activities of individual, professional, Edmonton artists for a specific time towards a specific project. Projects can be individual or collective and could include creation, development, curation, exhibition or production of work in any art form as well as professional development. Grants cannot be retroactive and cannot be applied to activity undertaken prior to the application deadline.

Level of support
Funds are usually limited, and grants are not guaranteed. Grants may be awarded to a normal maximum of $25,000.
