Project Grant Program — Individuals and Collectives: Guidelines Released

We are pleased to release the full guidelines for the 2024 Project Grant Program for Individuals and Collectives. Applications open on March 20, 2024 and the deadline to apply is May 1, 2024.

This program is intended to provide one-time project funding to individual artists and artist collectives in Calgary (known as Mohkinsstsis in Blackfoot), working in any artistic discipline.

Projects may begin before the application deadline, but they cannot be fully completed before the application deadline of May 1, 2024. Projects funded through this program must be complete by December 31, 2025.

Individual artists may apply for up to $20,000 and artist collectives may apply for up to $25,000. 

Total funding available for this program is $2.5 million.

How to Apply

We accept applications through an online grant platform. If you don’t already have an account with us, you will need to create an account and set up your user profile before you can apply.

The application form for this program will become available in the online grant platform on March 20, 2024. You will find it under ‘Open Opportunities’ when you log in.

Please note, artist collectives must apply for grants through a collective account that is separate from their own individual artist account. These must be distinct accounts that use a unique email address when registering.

Please contact for help with any questions or technical issues.

Information session and virtual open offices

We are hosting an online information session on Monday, March 25 from 3 – 5pm. Throughout April, we are also hosting weekly virtual ‘open office spaces’ online over Zoom. These sessions are open to any artist interested in applying to this program. 

Learn more about these opportunities and register here.
