Community-Run Public Art Microgrant: Info Session Online

Applying to the Community-Run Public Art Microgrant? You can find more information and advice in this online and on-demand information session.

Recognizing that public art opportunities can come from grassroots ideas that are initiated and led by communities, Calgary Arts Development invites proposals for community-run public art projects.

This opportunity is open to community-run organizations, including informal groups that define themselves in terms of distinct communities, neighbourhood associations and non-profit organizations or charitable organizations.

Community-run organizations in Calgary/Mohkinsstsis are invited to apply for funding to hire local artists and create public art in their neighbourhoods. Communities are required to team up with local artists at any level of experience to explore any form of public art in any part of the city.

Be sure to read the full guidelines and apply by 4:30pm MT on November 3, 2023.

If you have any questions or need any help completing an application, please contact Alex Lingnau, Project Lead, at or 403.264.5330.
