Program Description

The Visual Arts Section of the Canada Council for the Arts provides a range of grants in recognition and support of the independent creative work of professional Canadian artists of all cultures. These grants are intended for artists working in the following art forms: visual arts including photography, fine craft and architecture, and independent criticism and curation. Artists, critics, curators and programmers working in the fields of new media and audio, film and video should apply under the Travel Grants to Media Arts Professionals program.

Travel Grants to Professional Artists contribute towards expenses incurred to travel to an event important to the artist's career. Except for independent critics and curators, travel related to research, development or creation of a visual arts project is not eligible under this program (unless created in the context of a residency).
