welcome - Edmonton Arts Council

Connections & Exchanges Initiative Grants 

Deadline: TBD

The Edmonton Arts Council is modifying the Connections & Exchanges Initiatives Program intake, but the purpose is still to support artistic work in the community. This program had an original deadline of April 1, 2020, which will be briefly delayed. We will announce a new structure by the end of March. We understand the urgency and desire to move forward.


The Connections & Exchanges Initiative (C&E) grants are being revised to focus on planning artistic initiatives, commissions, training and creation activities that connect our community through creative collaborations.

Organizations may submit proposals of up to $20,000. A minimum of 75 percent of grant funds must be paid to Edmonton artists and collectives. The total amount available is $470,000.

Applications from arts organizations or festivals that were not funded in the last round of C&E grants will be prioritized. Program guidelines will be released shortly with an application date in early-April.

Applicants are encouraged to contact EAC Grants staff at grants@edmontonarts.ca or 780-424-2787 to discuss their applications or set up individual meetings at least two weeks prior to the deadline.
