Project Grant Program – Individuals and Collectives

Applications currently closed

COVID-19 Update

Both Project Grant Programs have been temporarily postponed as we determine the most appropriate way to support individual artists, artist collectives, and organizations who do not receive operational funding. Program guidelines and applications will not be available on the timelines originally published on our website.

Calgary Arts Development is reviewing these programs in light of the impacts from COVID-19 in order to meet the immediate and medium-term needs of the arts sector.

Program Overview

This program is intended to provide one-time project funding to individual artists and artistic collectives in Calgary who pursue a professional practice. This program is not open to arts administrators.

This program supports projects that strengthen our artistic communities and ensures that citizens of Calgary (known as Mohkinstsis in Blackfoot) can experience what they have to offer.

Projects may include the creation, development, production, or presentation of artistic work. Applicants may also apply for professional or career development projects. Projects or expenses related to post-secondary or credit/diploma granting programs and institutions are not eligible.

Please contact Taylor Poitras, Specialist, Individuals & Collectives, at with any questions or requests.
