September 12, 2023 Guidelines Released: Community-Run Microgrants Full guidelines have now been released for the Community-Run Microgrants for 2023. 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. Communities may apply for up to $10,000 to support eligible projects. Total funding available for this program is $300,000. Applications for this program open September 25, 2023 and close November 3, 2023. If you have any questions or need any help completing an application, please contact Alex Lingnau, Project Lead, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403.264.5330. Stay informed.
