Arts Building Operating Grant

Application Deadline: June 1
When this date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.

Completed application forms and required attachments should be submitted via email to grants@edmontonarts.ca by the deadline. 

Purpose

The City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Arts Council recognize that public art facilities such as concert halls, theatres, and non-profit art galleries are an important part of the community. As with any public facility, the costs associated with maintaining it can often exceed what users of that facility can reasonably support on a per-use basis. The Arts Building Operating grant program exists to help ensure these facilities remain accessible by the public in the service of a range of arts activities.

The Arts Building Operating grant will invest in a portion of the costs associated with maintaining clean, well-lit, heated and secure arts facilities that are regularly accessible by the public, whose use is of interest to the public and community groups. These include concert halls, performing arts venues (i.e. live theatre, music, and dance), non-profit cinema facilities, and public art galleries.

This program is not intended for capital expenditures, for endowment purposes, or to support programming costs. These grants are not intended to support organizations that are primarily training or educational institutions.

This program is not intended to replace other funding through the Edmonton Arts Council and/or the City of Edmonton.

Eligibility

Registered not-for-profit arts organizations that own or have long-term leases on concert halls, performing arts venues (i.e. live theatre, music, and dance), non-profit cinema facilities, and public art galleries in the corporate limits of the City of Edmonton are eligible to apply.
