What is the Aboriginal Arts Projects program?

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) recognizes that Aboriginal peoples are the original art and culture makers of this land and that Aboriginal artists and arts organizations are essential to the future of Ontario’s arts sector. The Aboriginal Arts Projects program supports Aboriginal artists and arts organizations to engage in artistic creation. Eligible projects can cover a range of activities at any stage of creation including research and development, creation and presentation of artistic work and activities that strengthen the Aboriginal arts community.

Program for: All

Purpose: To develop opportunities for Aboriginal artists to engage with Aboriginal communities and to strengthen the relationship of Aboriginal organizations and communities with the arts and Aboriginal artists.

Eligibility: This program is open to professional, Ontario-based Aboriginal artists, including artists’ collectives and not-for-profit Aboriginal organizations, centres and councils.

The OAC does not fund activities, events or projects that have taken place before the program deadline date or that have been completed before the results of the competition have been announced.

Note: You are strongly encouraged to call with questions about your application before the deadline. Because we receive so many telephone calls during the weeks before the deadline, please call with questions as far in advance as possible.

Deadline Dates: February 18 and September 15, 2015
Grant notification letters will be mailed out four months after the application deadline.
