Awards of $10,000 to Canada arts professionals at arts organizations to acknowledge outstanding achievement. The monetary awards are intended to be used for professional development and mentoring opportunities for mid-career and established arts managers.

There are two distinct awards:

  • The Professional Development and Renewal award allows an outstanding established or mid-career arts manager to take part in a short-term, recognized program, seminar or workshop for professional renewal and revitalization.
  • The Mentorship award allows an exceptional mid-career arts manager who is seeking to acquire different knowledge, experience, and skills to be mentored by an outstanding established or mid-career arts manager.

For the Professional Development and Renewal award, eligible expenses include:

  • The cost of the short-term program of study (registration fees, etc.)
  • Travel costs to and from the training site (based on economy fares)
  • Subsistence costs
  • The cost of supplies related to the program of study (books, manuals, other materials and so on).

For the Mentorship award, eligible expenses include:

  • Your salary replacement costs during the mentorship project and, if this applies, salary replacement costs for the mentor
  • Travel costs related to the mentorship project (based on economy fares)
  • Subsistence for you and the mentor
  • The cost of supplies related to the mentorship project

The John Hobday Awards in Arts Management were created to:

  • Recognize the arts management profession
  • Recognize excellence and accomplishment in this profession
  • Contribute to the professional development and revitalization of experienced managers
  • Contribute to the transfer of knowledge and experience from established and midcareer managers to the next generation.

No posthumous awards will be given; successful applicants must still be living for the duration of the project.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline: 1 March 2020
Your completed application form and all required support material must be postmarked on or before the deadline date. If this date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.

The Canada Council will not accept applications postmarked after the deadline, incomplete applications, or those submitted by fax or email.

The peer assessment committee may decide not to award one or both of the awards in a given year. The committee may also choose two recipients for a Professional Development and Renewal award or two recipients for a Mentorship award.

You will be informed of the result of your application approximately five months after the application deadline.

You may apply for only one of the awards in a given year. You may receive both a Professional Development and Renewal award and a Mentorship award, but only one of each during your career.
