Arts Response Initiative: Project Grants for Ad Hoc Groups, Collectives and Organizations

Hosted by Ontario Arts Council

Deadline: November 3, 2020, 1 p.m. ET

The program supports Ontario-based professional arts organizations to continue to work and participate in the arts community in the context of COVID-19. It encourages exploration, adaptation, and the development of new ways of working that will help to increase the resilience of Ontario’s arts sector. Projects must be in response to the challenges resulting from the pandemic. This can include activities that assist artists and arts organizations in the short, medium and long term.

Note: This program does not support creation, production, presentation/dissemination or school- and community-based arts engagement activities. These activities are supported through OAC’s regular project programs which continue to run as usual, many with expanded eligibility in response to COVID-19.
