2023 Arts & Culture Microgrant

Non-profits and registered charities, including community associations and business improvement areas, can apply for between $500 and $50,000 in funding for community-based arts and culture initiatives. Artists are invited to partner with these organizations to create initiatives that connect community members and make public spaces more inviting.

Activities could include a community mural, neighbourhood concert, winter carnival, cultural celebration or whatever else your creative mind dreams up.

To qualify, initiatives must:

  • Support local and publicly accessible programming and creative placemaking.
  • Strengthen the local economy and contribute to community spirit and wellbeing.
  • Include community-run projects and installations, opportunities for local artists and culture makers, events, activations in winter months, or activities with an Indigenous or multicultural focus.
  • Be new or improved over previous years (if the idea was executed in the past).

Full details and application forms are available here.
