Vancouver Foundation, in partnership with the Carnegie Community Centre, is proud to announce the Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants program is now accepting fall 2016 applications.
For many years, we’ve been working together to give downtown eastside artists the opportunity to advance their careers by supporting and showcasing their work. The program offers small grants of $500 up to $1,000 for artists who demonstrate a history of original art practice, and show a vital engagement with the downtown eastside community.
The deadline for applications is Friday November 25, 2016, at 4pm.
For full details of the application process, go to the 'Apply' section of the website.
For the first time, grant applications will be accepted for collaborative projects from a group of artists. This is a pilot initiative and only five group projects will be supported this year. The purpose of the group projects is to provide the opportunity for emerging artists to collaborate in making and showcasing art, and strengthen their interactions through the process.
