Micro Grant Call for Applications

Hosted by Cinevolution Media Arts Society

Are you an emerging BIPOC artist or arts worker? Do you have lived experience of disability, or are you Deaf or Hard of Hearing, neurodivergent, and/or Mad? Are you interested in media art or exploring the use of digital media in your work?

Cinevolution is giving out five $1,000 grants to individual artists and arts workers who have limited access to traditional funding. The goal of this program is to provide financial assistance to artists and arts workers for self-directed learning, research, and creative experimentation. You do not need formal arts training to apply. You do not need to produce a complete work by the end of the project.

This grant is for you if you are an emerging artist and/or arts worker who:

  • Identifies as Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Colour;
  • Has lived experience of disability, or is Deaf or Hard of Hearing, neurodivergent, and/or Mad;
  • Is over the age of 18; and
  • Lives in BC

For this grant, we define an emerging artist as someone who is developing an artistic practice or exploring art as a means of communicating ideas and stories.

Formal training and previous exhibition experience are not required. You can be any age, but priority will be given to youth (18-24 years) and individuals who have not previously received arts funding.

Deadline for applications: 11:59pm Pacific Time on July 15, 2022.
