Hey Peterborough artists, do you have an upcoming show? Ontario Arts Council offers Exhibition Asssistance for individual artists. Did you know that ARTSPACE is a third-party recommender?
The program provides grants of $500 to $1,500 to assist individual artists with costs related to presenting their work for an exhibition. Grants are made through third-party recommenders (public art galleries, artist-run centres and arts service organizations) throughout the province. Artists must apply directly to a recommender located in the zone in which they live. Approved applications are forwarded to OAC by the recommender once the decision to award a grant has been made. Eligibility: This program is open to Ontario-based professional visual artists, craft artists and media artists who have a confirmed, upcoming public exhibition.
