SK Arts Accessibility Fund helps people facing barriers, such as those who are Deaf, have a disability, live with mental illness or whose primary language is not English, to access our programs and services.
The Accessibility Fund offers Access Support and Project Support for SK Arts programs and events.
Access Support provides funds for services to overcome the following barriers:
- creating an account on our online application portal,
- completing and submitting a grant application on our online application portal,
- completing and submitting an interim or final report on our online application portal, or
- attending an SK Arts event in-person or online.
This support is available to anyone eligible to apply to our programs, regardless of whether they end up submitting an application or if the resulting application is successful.
Individuals or collectives applying for SK Arts funding in the Independent Artists (IA) or Indigenous Peoples Art and Artists (IPAA) programs may request Project Support. These funds cover expenses related to accommodations for barriers and are not used toward other project costs. They also do not count toward the maximum funding amount for the IA or IPAA programs. They are awarded automatically, based on needs and costs (up to 50% of the grant amount), if the jury funds the application. Project Support funds are not juried.
There is no special application process for Project Support. Information is included with the individual’s or collective’s application to the IA or IPAA program.
