Applications for arts grants for P.E.I. residents now being accepted

Island artists are invited to apply for funding during the spring 2019 round of arts grants.
Applications for funding can be submitted at Arts Grants program (https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/innovation-pei/arts-grants-program) for three types of grants, including creation, dissemination and professional development.

The deadline to apply is June 12, 4 p.m.

Successful applicants are selected by a six-member jury of their arts community peers, which is modeled on the practice followed by the Canada Council of the Arts.

There is $50,000 available in this round of funding, with another round of $50,000 in the fall.

Melissa Mullen’s theatre group, the Homestead Players, which also included Rob MacLean and the late Harry Baglole, was the recipient of a $7,000 creation grant under the program in 2017.

Since the fall of 2016, the province has supported 72 Island artists with grants totalling $300,000.
