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.
