Artists invited to apply for spring round of grants


Island artists can now apply for the spring round of the province's arts grants programs.

There is $100,000 available in this round of funding, with another round of $50,000 in the fall, said a release from the Department of Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture.

Applicatio­ns for funding can be submitted online at the province's website for three types of grants, including creation, disseminat­ion and profession­al developmen­t.

The deadline to apply is Friday, May 14, at 4 p.m.

A six-member jury of arts community peers will select the successful applicants, a model based on the Canada Council of the Arts practice.

Since fall 2016, the province has supported 130 projects by Island artists, totalling $475,220.
