January 11, 2021 Artist Development Microgrant Applications are now open for the Artist Development Microgrant. Be sure to submit your application via the online grant interface before 4:30pm MT on February 16, 2021. The Artist Development Microgrant is intended to provide one-time funding to individual artists and artist collectives in Calgary who have been impacted by COVID-19. It supports professional development and business development activities as well as the completion or adaptation of work that has been affected by COVID-19. This microgrant is not intended to support new work. The goal of the program is to allow artists to respond to new approaches and emergent needs, reduce barriers to opportunities, contribute to skills, knowledge and professional development and advance professional arts and artistic practices in Calgary (known as Moh’kinsstis in Blackfoot). Applicants may request up to $2,500. Total funding available for this program is $130,000. Be sure to review the guidelines for requirements and all the details. Please note that Calgary Arts Development staff are continuing to work remotely.
