Grant Description

This fellowship is designed to support the growth and development of curatorial talent by contracting an individual or ensemble of individuals to develop content for an online exhibition of Albertan visual art.
This initiative is intended to bring a new perspective to the artworks and artists featured in the AFA collection.

This fellowship supports online exhibitions of Albertan visual art. A contract worth up to $10,000 per proposal is available for this project. A maximum of one fellowship will be awarded.

Each exhibit will be posted on the AFA website and the Google Cultural Institute (GCI) website and is intended to create exposure for the AFA collection, especially for artworks that cannot be used in regular AFA programming.
