Small Experiments Grant Program

Small Experiments Grant Program

Small Experiments Grant applications are now open for the October 27, 4:30pm MST deadline. The goal of this program is to provide support for those looking to take control of their own learning processes to develop new approaches to challenges and opportunities relevant to the work they do in the arts.

For more information on this program eligibility and criteria, please review the program guidelines.

This program invests in low-risk, high-learning experiments demonstrating a clearly identified issue that needs to be addressed, a hypothesis being tested, and a method for collecting information and learning from results.

Please keep in mind that this program is only about investing in a shift to new ways of thinking and learning, understanding that practicing experimentation is an effective way to become more adaptive and innovative.

It’s not enough for you to propose something that is merely interesting, challenging or even important in and of itself—at the very least it should be something that represents a fundamental shift in the way you have been working previously.

Apply If:

  • You are prepared to take a critical look at core assumptions around your work.
  • More than funding you need an opportunity to learn and take real risks.
  • This could this transform the way you do your work.

Please consult the Investment Program FAQ or contact the Community Investment team at or 403.476.2031 if you have further questions.
