Project Grant Program – Individuals and Collectives

Applications are now open for the Project Grant Program for individuals and collectives. Be sure to submit your application via the online grant interface before 4:30pm MT on June 14, 2021.

The Project Grant Program seeks to support projects that contribute to the vibrancy and vitality of Calgary’s arts sector.

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 who pursue a professional practice. This program is not open to arts administrators, cultural workers or registered non-profit or for-profit organizations.

Projects may include the creation, development, production, presentation or dissemination of artistic work. Applicants may also apply for professional or career development projects.

An applicant may only apply to this program for one project or one distinct phase of a project. We will only accept one application per individual or collective, and one application per project. You may not receive more than one Calgary Arts Development grant for the same project or phase of a project. Success in this program does not affect your eligibility to apply to other Calgary Arts Development grant investment programs.

This program cannot fund projects retroactively, meaning that projects can begin before the application deadline, but projects that will be fully complete before the application deadline of June 14, 2021 are not eligible. Projects funded through this program must be complete by December 31, 2022. Total funding available for this program is $1,100,000. Be sure to read the full guidelines for details.

Please note that Calgary Arts Development staff are continuing to work remotely. If you have any questions about this program please review the Investment Program Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and contact Taylor Poitras, Specialist, Individuals and Collectives Programs, at or 403.264.5330 ext.215.
