Equity & Access in the Arts

Equity & Access in the Arts invests in a thriving and diverse arts community by supporting Edmonton based artists and collectives from communities that face barriers to access. This includes, but is not limited to, groups whose members are treated differently because of systemic barriers that disadvantage people based on their Indigenous heritage, the colour of their skin, their disabilities, sexual orientation and identity, and/or immigration status.

The Edmonton Artists' Trust Fund (EATF)

The Edmonton Artists' Trust Fund (EATF) is a joint initiative of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation. The EATF invests in the creative community by supporting living and working expenses, allowing exceptional local artists to devote time to their artistic career and encouraging artists to stay in our community.

Grants for Individuals & Collectives

Artists and their work are the foundation of our arts community. Working as Individuals or Collectives, artists pursue work that develops their practice, advances creative thought, contributes to an art form and provides our community with a reflection of itself. The Edmonton Arts Council’s (EAC) Individuals & Collectives grant has three distinct streams, each with their own evaluation criteria and assessment process.
