Information Session: TAC Animating Historic Sites

Hosted by Toronto Arts Council

Are you a professional artist, arts organization or collective that wants to explore an idea at a Toronto historic site? Are you looking to expand your arts practice by animating a historic site in ways that responds to or interprets the selected site? Join our information session to learn more about the Toronto Arts Council Animating Historic Sites funding program.

This information session is open to any Toronto-based professional artists, not-for-profit arts organizations or artist collectives operating on a not-for-profit basis. Toronto Arts Council Program Manager, Lena Golubtsova, will discuss eligibility, give examples of the types of projects that have received funding in past, and will answer questions from those in attendance. We will also be joined by past grant recipient, UrbanVessel who will share their project and journey with the program. 

About the program The Animating Historic Sites program provides funding to professional artists, arts organizations and collectives working in any artistic discipline (i.e.: theatre, dance, music, visual arts, media arts, community-engaged arts, Indigenous arts, Black arts, disability arts, arts education, etc) to undertake free site-specific programming or an artist residency that responds to or interprets the selected site or museum. This grant may cover up to 100% of project costs, including artist fees, equipment rental, materials, insurance and other residency and programming costs.

Site-specific programming occurs at one of the following partnered historic sites: Gibson House, Montgomery’s Inn, Spadina Museum, Scarborough Museum, Todmorden Mills, or Evergreen Brick Works. The maximum grant in each category is $30,000

The deadline to apply is July 5, 2022.
