Project Grant Program 2017

The goal of the Project Grant Program is to support the creation of work that ensures citizens of Calgary continue to have access to meaningful, high-quality artistic experiences, investing in artistic projects that exemplify what our artistic community has to offer. The Project Grant is open to individual professional artists or collectives, and non-profit community or professional arts organizations.
