Grants of $10,000 to Ontario nonprofit arts organizations, artists, and collectives in eligible locations to support collaborative public arts programs. Funding is intended to increase access to the arts for underserved populations. The purpose of this program is to support community-engaged artist residencies in selected branches of the Toronto Public Library in Etobicoke, York, North York, East York, and Scarborough.
Resident artists will have the opportunity to create and deliver free public arts programming, explore their art practice in a community setting, explore the branch and engage with its surrounding community, undertake collaborative artistic research or creation, and present work to the local community. Grant recipients may undertake artistic research, participatory programs, community-engaged projects, visual and media arts installations, screenings and exhibitions, workshops, artist-talks, open studio sessions, arts education programs, mentorship opportunities, performances, and other public arts activities.
TAC is committed to equity and inclusion. TAC welcomes and encourages applications from all Toronto artists, arts organizations and artist collectives. Specific equity measures or targeted programs are in place to ensure full access and participation by Indigenous artists, artists of color, artists who are Deaf, have disabilities or are living with mental illness, artists who self-identify as 2SLGBTQIAP, newcomer and refugee artists, young and emerging artists, and artists working outside the downtown core.
