Grant Description

The Arts Equity Progam is designed to help both emerging and established professional artists from designated communities that have historically faced barriers to accessing funding support.

The initiative will provide funds for Creation, Production/ Presentation, Professional Development, and Special Travel. The designated communities of artists include:

  • Indigenous (Mi’kmaq as well as other First Nations, Metis and Inuit),
  • culturally diverse (African-Nova Scotian and other visible minorities of African, Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern and mixed racial descents) and
  • artists who are Deaf, have disabilities, or are living with mental illness.
