Artshare Program: 2023 Results

The ArtShare Program was intended to provide one-time project funding to individual artists, artist collectives and arts organizations in Calgary / Mohkinsstsis who self-identify as equity-seeking, or which are led by and serve equity-seeking communities. Calgary Arts Development program staff work one on one with applicants to develop grant proposals and funding amounts.

Calgary Arts Development 2023 grant investment programs for individual artists and artist collectives were supplemented through the Cultural Vitality Fund of the Calgary Arts Foundation, with donations from individual donors, the Auxilium Foundation, and an Anonymous Donor to the Edmonton Community Foundation. We thank these donors for their generous support.

We were able to support 43 applications to a total of $512,000.
