Sep 4, 2020 | News, Uncategorized



The program aims to support projects that:

  • Catalyze the development of new or existing arts and cultural spaces through acquisition, renovation, or purchase of specialized equipment;
  • Improve physical, social, and cultural accessibility to arts and cultural spaces
  • Enhance access to arts and cultural spaces for underserved communities and underrepresented arts and cultural practices; and
  • Strengthen the capacity of the sector to develop, operate and sustain arts and cultural spaces.

All projects must clearly demonstrate how they benefit arts and cultural practitioners.

There are two project categories:

Capital Improvements
Building-based projects involving the purchase, construction, renovation, or expansion of an arts and/or cultural facility may request assistance from this program up to $75,000.

Specialized Equipment Acquisition
Projects focused solely on the purchase of specialized equipment for long-term use and associated installation expenses may request assistance from this program up to $40,000.
