Disabled BIPOC Emerging Artist Micro Grant

Hosted by Cyborg Circus Project

The Cyborg Circus Project and the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP) are proud to present the Disabled BIPOC Artist Micro-grant Program. This program is a one-time micro grant opportunity for Disabled BIPOC emerging artists in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Artists should be within the first five years of their career and be experiencing some kind of barrier artistically or personally that these funds could help address.

We define disability broadly and include Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Disabled and Mad folks*. Additionally, folks with invisible disabilities such as chronic illnesses, learning disabilities, etc. qualify for this opportunity. Due to the barriers associated with obtaining a diagnosis, a formal diagnosis of disability is not required for this opportunity.

Three micro grants are available (1 x $1000, 2 x $500). Two of the three grants will be awarded specifically to Black artists. These grants are directed towards improving the lives of emerging artists and do not need to be used towards a specific project.

Applications are due January 15th 2021 at 11:59 pm EST. Successful applicants will be notified in February 2021.
