Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants - now including group projects

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.
