  • Projects that create opportunities for your organization to attract, restore and retain jobs for artists and arts professionals. 
  • Projects that support your organization’s development or strengthens your ability to connect with your community.  
  • Arts-centred projects that encourage everyday creativity, including cross-sector collaboration, creative economy and neighbourhood-level community initiatives. 

Organizations may apply for up to $30,000. Total funding available for this program is $700,000.

Applications for this program open May 20, 2024 and close July 3, 2024.
