Individual Artist Program

Individual Artist Program

The intention of this program is to support the artist’s overall practice rather than focusing investment on distinct project outcomes or artistic outputs. We believe that removing financial barriers for artists to dedicate time, resources, and energy on their daily artistic practice creates the conditions necessary for the artist to create meaningful artistic work, experiences, and relationships within the city of Calgary.

Phase 1 had a total of 205 eligible applicants and Phase 2 had a total of 40 eligible applicants. 10 artists were granted a set amount of $30,000.
