CUE 2020 Grant Cycle is Open

“Apply for a $1000 grant to produce an art project in any discipline.

Grants are for artists who are new-generation artists living and working on the margins, and facing systemic barriers to accessing professional arts opportunities.

CUE is a radical arts initiative dedicated to supporting new generation artists who live and work on the margins. Throughout history, some of the most innovative artwork has been created by artists who experience marginalization and face systemic barriers, and who have been excluded by conventional arts and cultural institutions. We recognize that arts funding agencies have often not adapted to growing social, cultural, and economic inequality.

In response, CUE has designed an accessible funding program offering not only financial support for art projects, but also consultation in preparing project proposals, support throughout the production process, and opportunities for public exhibition”

Arts Response Initiative / Initiative de rĂ©ponse du milieu des arts (Ontario Arts Council / Conseil des arts de l’Ontario)

“The $1.6M Arts Response Initiative is an investment in the diversity and vitality of the arts across Ontario. The one-time initiative supports individual artists, ad hoc groups and collectives, and arts organizations to carry out their activities in an environment of change. This initiative encourages exploration, adaptation, and the development of new ways of working that will increase the inclusiveness and resilience of Ontario’s arts sector, both now and into the future. 
 
To develop the Arts Response Initiative, OAC held consultations and roundtables with artists and arts organizations across Ontario. These conversations made it clear that COVID-19 is having an acute impact on the arts sector, affecting everyone both professionally and personally. We also heard that the impacts of the pandemic are being experienced unevenly across communities and regions in the province, exacerbating existing inequities. As a result, projects that support OAC priority groups, including Black and Indigenous artists, will be given particular consideration. For the arts to move forward and grow more resilient, we must ensure that all communities are included. 
 
The funds for this initiative come from OAC’s annual base budget, temporarily redirected from programs that support activities limited by travel and in-person gathering restrictions. Specifically, Market Development Travel Assistance and Market Development Projects programs have been suspended for 2020, as well as Chalmers Arts Fellowships (a private endowment managed by OAC). A percentage of the Touring Projects budget is also being used. 
 
The Arts Response Initiative is one of the ways that OAC is addressing the challenges faced by the arts community in the context of COVID-19. Prior to this initiative, OAC took a number of other steps to support grant applicants and recipients (see COVID-19 – OAC activity updates). OAC’s project programs continue to support creation, production, presentation, dissemination and artistic activities that engage communities and schools, many with adjusted eligibility to recognize how artists and arts organizations are responding and adapting to the current context.” 


Initiative de réponse du milieu des arts

“L’Initiative de rĂ©ponse du milieu des arts de 1,6 million de dollars est un investissement dans la diversitĂ© et la vitalitĂ© des arts en Ontario. Cette initiative ponctuelle aide les artistes, les groupes ad hoc, les collectifs et les organismes artistiques Ă  exercer leurs activitĂ©s dans un environnement en mutation. Elle encourage l’exploration, l’adaptation et le dĂ©veloppement de nouvelles mĂ©thodes de travail qui augmenteront l’inclusivitĂ© et la rĂ©silience du secteur des arts de l’Ontario aujourd’hui et Ă  l’avenir.

Pour dĂ©velopper l’Initiative de rĂ©ponse du milieu des arts, le CAO a organisĂ© des consultations et des tables rondes avec des artistes et des organismes artistiques de la province entière. Ces conversations ont montrĂ© clairement que la COVID-19 a un impact profond sur le secteur des arts et qu’elle touche tout le monde, sur le plan professionnel comme sur le plan personnel. Nous avons Ă©galement appris que les rĂ©percussions de la pandĂ©mie sont ressenties de manière inĂ©gale dans diffĂ©rentes communautĂ©s et rĂ©gions de la province, ce qui exacerbe les inĂ©galitĂ©s existantes. Par consĂ©quent, les projets qui soutiennent les groupes prioritaires du CAO, notamment les artistes noirs et autochtones, bĂ©nĂ©ficieront d’une attention particulière. Pour que les arts puissent progresser et devenir plus rĂ©silients, nous devons veiller Ă  inclure toutes les communautĂ©s.

Cette initiative est financée par le budget de base annuel du CAO. Les fonds qui lui sont affectés proviennent provisoirement de programmes qui soutiennent des activités limitées par les restrictions en matière de déplacements et de rassemblements en personne. Il s’agit notamment des programmes Développement des marchés – aide au déplacement, Développement des marchés – projets, et Bourses Chalmers de recherche artistique (une dotation privée gérée par le CAO). Un pourcentage du programme Tournées – projets est également utilisé.

L’Initiative de rĂ©ponse du milieu des arts est l’une des mesures prises par le CAO pour contrer les problèmes auxquels le milieu artistique doit faire face dans le contexte de la COVID-19. Avant le lancement de cette initiative, le CAO avait dĂ©jĂ  pris d’autres mesures pour soutenir les candidats et les bĂ©nĂ©ficiaires de subventions (voir COVID-19 – Le point sur les activitĂ©s du CAO). Les programmes de projets du CAO continuent Ă  subventionner les activitĂ©s de crĂ©ation, de production et de diffusion ainsi que les activitĂ©s artistiques interactives dans les communautĂ©s et les Ă©coles. Bon nombre de ces programmes et activitĂ©s bĂ©nĂ©ficient de critères d’admissibilitĂ© modifiĂ©s qui tiennent compte de la façon dont les artistes et les organismes artistiques rĂ©agissent et s’adaptent au contexte actuel.”
