Grant Writing for Disabled Artists

Hosted by Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture

4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST

This grant-writing workshop facilitated by Regan Shrumm is geared towards Artists who identify as living with disabilities based in British Columbia.

This workshop will feature tips on where to apply (City, Municipal, BC Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, and Private Foundations); learning about how grants are assessed; tips on scheduling the grant timeline; and writing advice.

The session will be interactive by offering some activities to help participants think through their project. It will also include some strategies on the accommodations that some of the granting agencies such as the BC Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts have for individuals with disabilities.


This workshop will be presented on Zoom. ASL and closed captions will be provided.

    Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture, in Vancouver BC, gives artists with disabilities a voice. This can mean everything from facilitating a disability art group, to bringing an international film to Vancouver, to presenting art exhibitions and concerts.

    We are committed to supporting and promoting artists in every discipline, with all disabilities (and sometimes collaborations with able-bodied artists). We present the best in Vancouver and BC, and where possible, we bring new voices to Vancouver from across the country and around the world. We support artists and develop audiences for an understanding of disability art.

    Becoming part of the larger picture, of course, means professionalism. Kickstart is also committed to presenting professional work in a professional context. To coin a phrase “authentic non-sentimental expressions of the disability experience”.

    In programming and curating, we present cutting-edge work as the artists we present offer distinct perspectives on the human experience – risk taking, artistically engaging, socially relevant and at times, challenging.

    We are a nonprofit Society and a registered federal charity in Canada, with a small staff and a dedicated crew of volunteers. Please check out one of our events and get involved with us!
