The Arts Micro-Grant program provides funding to enable artists, collectives and organizations to respond to unexpected circumstances and changes in the arts and culture sector.
The Arts Vitality Micro-Grant allows artists, collectives and organizations to respond to new approaches, reduces barriers to opportunities and advances professional development and knowledge. Funding through this grant can be used to support adapting an existing work or professional practice, developing alternative production/presentation/distribution strategies, gaining new skills, or exploring new technologies and digital opportunities.
Eligible applicants will have completed basic training in their field, demonstrated their commitment to their art form and be working to develop their activities to a professional skill level of art forms in any discipline. Applicants from any artistic discipline are encouraged to apply.
This funding is for Indigenous artists or collectives, 19 years of age or older, who have been a resident of B.C. for at least the past year. It is also for non-profit Indigenous organizations and societies, and First Nations communities located in B.C., that work across all art forms, including visual, performance and story. Please review the guidelines for the full list of eligibility requirements.
