Indigenous Arts Projects (Ontario Arts Council)

“The program supports Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) artists to research, develop and create new work and engage with their communities, as well as opportunities for Indigenous organizations and communities to strengthen their relationships with the arts. There are two categories:

  • Individuals
  • Ad hoc groups/collectives, organizations

Grants help cover the costs of:

  • research and development that will lead to the creation of new work. Artistic research, exploration and experimentation including workshops/residencies are also eligible. All emerging, mid-career and established artists (including curators) working with all art forms are welcome to apply
  • creation and production of new work in any art form (e.g. film/video, visual arts, new media, cultural arts, dance, theatre, music, pottery, fiction, spoken word and storytelling, etc.). All emerging, mid-career and established artists working in all art forms are welcome to apply
  • presentations, exhibitions, publications and festivals in which the primary purpose of the project is the presentation, promotion and distribution of art made by Indigenous artists. Examples include exhibitions, individual and series presentations, publications, tours, festivals and innovative audience development projects
  • connections and partnerships that bring artists together through conferences, workshops, gatherings, delegations, exchanges or other activities that will foster artistic relationships, connections and partnerships that strengthen the Indigenous arts community”
