Digital Originals: Micro innovation grants / Connexion création: Microsubventions pour l’innovation

“Countless artistic activities have been cancelled or delayed due to COVID-19, but countless creations have also reached an impressive online audience.

The Canada Council and CBC/Radio-Canada’s Digital Originals initiative supports and amplifies this new, strong, and innovative online relationship between audiences and artists from Canada.

What is the Digital Originals initiative?

Digital Originals is a new initiative to help artists, arts groups, and organizations pivot their work for online sharing.

Artists, groups or organizations can either adapt their existing work or create a new work for digital dissemination to the Canadian public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Digital Originals offers a $5,000 micro innovation grant from the Canada Council.

Funded projects will be housed on a dedicated CBC/Radio-Canada website. In addition, CBC/Radio-Canada will feature selected projects for showcase on at least one of its digital CBC/Radio-Canada platforms.

Selected projects for the curated CBC-Radio/Canada showcase will receive a supplemental amount of $1000.

With the sponsorship of the RBC Foundation, as part of their ongoing activities to support youth in Canada, $150,000 in Digital Originals funding is available for new and early career artists.”

CUE: Grants for New-Generation Artists Living and Working in the Margins (Toronto)

“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 struggled to keep up with 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.

Founded in 2008, to date CUE has provided over $350,000 to support the creation of more than 350 art projects in multiple disciplines.

Artists must meet with CUE before submitting an application.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: October 31
Apply for up to $1000 to produce a project in any discipline

For more information please visit www.cueartprojects.ca.”

Community Arts Program Grant (Edmonton Arts Council)

“Artists working with communities; communities working with artists providing arts access to all.
Community Art is valued for its ability to bring people together in shared, collaborative, creative experiences to express the things that have meaning to us: where we’ve come from, where we’re going, our world, our fears, our dreams, our aspirations. It strengthens the community, builds identity, develops creativity, and increases awareness of the arts in our lives.

The principles behind Community Art projects are artistic exploration, active participation and intentional inclusiveness that allows communities to tell their own stories.

Application Deadline: May 1st. When May 1 falls on a holiday or weekend, the deadline is the next business day.

Purpose
The Community Arts grant program invests in the quality of life in our city by supporting artistic projects that are clear collaborations between an artist and a distinct community. It recognizes that art should be accessible to all communities in Edmonton. A community may define themselves by many factors such as tradition and culture, geographic area of the city, or demographic characteristics, etc.

Eligibility
An applicant can be an individual, an organization, or an informal group located in the greater Edmonton region including the City of Edmonton and the Counties of Sturgeon, Parkland, Leduc and Strathcona. They must not have any outstanding EAC final reports.”
