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. »
