Edmonton Arts Council launches COVID-19 funding for artists

The City of Edmonton, via the Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) has launched the Creators’ Reserve program, allowing Edmonton-based artists to invest their time in:

  • the exploration of an idea
  • the research and development of content
  • the creation of new artistic work or the substantive revision of a work-in-progress.

How much is the available grant?

Investment amounts are fixed at $5,000 to value the time needed to pursue a wide range of creation activities. Artists seeking to engage the services of an artistic peer or peers may request additional funds of up to $1,000 to compensate others.
