Guidelines Released: Future Focus Granting Program

Guidelines for the Future Focus Granting Program have now been updated for 2023–2024.

The Future Focus Granting Program is a pilot program developed in collaboration with and funded by three partners: Calgary Arts Development, the Rozsa Foundation and the Calgary Foundation.

The past three years have seen significant upheaval in the arts, and many arts organizations are now grappling with the question “what is this moment asking of us?” by exploring new directions, priorities and identities in response to their changing context. 

In support of this work, the Future Focus Program is aimed at supporting arts organizations to investigate, plan and implement significant strategic adaptations in their operations. 

On June 27, 2023 Calgary Arts Development held an information session on this year’s Future Focus Granting Program. The video and transcript of the session are below.
