The program is intended to help emerging artists like you working and living in Downtown Eastside advance your art practice. We accept applications once a year for grants from $500 – $1,000.
Your art can be from a very wide range of media including music, theatre, writing, photography, pottery, textiles, jewellery making, carving, painting, animation, dance, mixed-media, performance, video and others. Emerging artists who don’t have access to major funding are encouraged to apply.
Applying for a Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grant is easy via our online application system. You`ll need to check you live and / or work in the designated area, and provide some information about your experience in making art, your connection to the Downtown Eastside, and your idea for a project. Applications for group projects will also be considered.
