Project Grant Program — Organizations: Info Session

Applying to the Project Grant Program for Organizations? You can find more information and advice in this online and on-demand information session.

The Project Grant Program — Organizations is intended to provide one-time project funding to registered non-profit arts organizations in Calgary (known as Mohkinsstsis in Blackfoot). The Project Grant Program seeks to support projects that align with any of the following priority areas:

  • Projects that reflect and contribute to the vibrancy and vitality of Calgary’s arts sector and create opportunities for Calgarians to access artistic experiences.
  • Projects that create opportunities to attract, restore and retain jobs for artists and arts professionals.
  • Projects that support organizational development or strengthen the organization’s ability to connect with their community.
  • Arts-centred projects that encourage everyday creativity, including cross-sector collaboration, creative economy and neighbourhood-level community initiatives.

The purpose of this session is to provide more context about the project grant program for organizations, and the specific goals and criteria. It also provides some approaches, examples and questions that might be helpful to consider when determining if you will apply and how best to do so.

Be sure to read the Guidelines and apply by 4:30pm MT on August 30, 2023.
