Artists at Work

Deadlines: TBC – Program under review

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
"Large grants" of between $5,001 and $25,000 once a year

The EAC is working with its Board of Directors on the revision and redesign of programs that support individual artists and arts professionals from our arts community. Future deadlines for other EAC granting programs for individuals might also need to be revised and redesigned. The EAC will consult with artists and arts professionals for their assistance in revising and redesigning these programs.  

When a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day. Apply via eacawards.fluidreview.com.

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. 

Artist Project Grants are intended to support the activities of professional Edmonton artists for a specific time towards a specific project. Projects can be individual or collective and could include creation, research, development, curation, exhibition or production of work in any art form, as well as professional development projects.
