Arts In The Parks Funding Opportunities For Local Artists


Artists and arts organizations may be eligible for grants to support this programming through Toronto Arts Council’s Animating Toronto Parks grants program.   

Working with Parks, Forestry and Recreation, TAC has designated a total of 29 parks for programming under the grants program.  Amos Waites Park in your ward has been selected as one of these designated parks. 

The application deadline for funding is December 4. 

The Animating Toronto Parks grants program provides funding to professional artists, organizations and artist collectives to create and present free arts programming in selected Toronto parks located outside the downtown core. For the purposes of this program, “arts programming” may include the presentation of dance, literary arts, music, theatre, visual arts and media arts, community-engaged arts and any combination of the above. Permanent installations will not be funded within this program.
