Funding is intended to support artists in a wide range of genres, including literature, dance, music composition and music performance, theater and performance art; visual arts, design arts, and media arts.

Artistic disciplines supported: Literature (creative non-fiction, fiction, play writing and poetry); Dance (including choreography); Music composition and music performance; Theatre and Performance Art; Visual Arts (crafts, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media and new media); Design Arts; and Media Arts. Folk & Traditional artists whose practice falls into one of the above categories are welcomed to apply.
