The Community Arts Spaces program supports Indigenous arts organizations and arts collectives to develop Indigenous workspaces and workshops in order to share artistic skills and knowledge.
The Community Arts Spaces program supports activities including workshops, training, knowledge sharing, workshop materials and minor building renovations and improvements.
Projects must be initiated and directed by Indigenous artists, arts and culture organizations or established Indigenous arts collectives. For the purposes of this program, the term “Indigenous artists” refers to a person with Indigenous descent or heritage, and includes First Nations, Métis or Inuit practitioners of both traditional or contemporary art forms. Registered Indian Status is not required.
This program is made possible through a partnership with the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.
