looking for some dough to put on a show?

Exhibition Assistance from the Ontario Arts Council

Program for: Individuals

Purpose: 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.

Deadlines: Applications are accepted between July 2006 and February 2007. Recommenders establish their own application deadlines for Exhibition Assistance, or may decide to accept applications on an ongoing basis. Artists should contact recommenders directly for further information.

Thank you for posting that! So many people (some of them so-called experts) keep saying that there are no grants for individuals. And I am glad to see that someone else has proved them wrong!
