Community and Neighbourhood Arts Development Grants Program

Deadline and Grant-writing Workshops for 2013

The Community and Neighbourhood Arts Development program supports artist and community-driven collaborations, cultural events and parades that celebrate and promote Vancouver’s unique communities and neighbourhoods through arts and cultural activities ranging from amateur to professional practices.

The next deadline for eligible applications is March 1st, 2013. Program information can be found here. http://vancouver.ca/people-programs/community-neighbourhood-arts-development-program.aspx Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Cultural Services staff, 604.809.2007, to ensure eligibility and obtain an application form.

Grant-writing Workshops

To provide assistance and a better understanding of the program, its objectives, and the application process, Cultural Services will be conducting two grant-writing workshops. You only need to attend one workshop.

Each workshop will provide an overview of the application form with a focus on writing your project description in response to the evaluation criteria, constructing a realistic budget and the planning details required to support your proposal. These workshops will take place on:

Wednesdays, January 23rd and 30th, 2013, 5:00 to 8:00 pm

Woodwards Heritage Building, 111 West Hastings Street, W Room, 5th Floor

The workshops are open to representatives of organizations or partners eligible to apply to the program (e.g. a staff or board member of an organization, a key artist or administrator involved), have a project or an idea in development, and are seriously intending to submit an application to the March 1st, 2013 deadline.

With a room capacity of 25 places available, a maximum of 2 people per organization may register.

Cultural Services reserves the right to determine final registration based on the above.
