Toronto Arts Council’s Indigenous Arts Projects program is an annual multi-disciplinary project grant specifically for Indigenous artists, collectives and organizations. For the purpose of this program, “Indigenous” is defined as a Canadian Aboriginal person who self-defines as First Nations (Status or Non-status), Métis, or Inuit. TAC recognizes that in the diverse mosaic of Toronto, Indigenous people are the original inhabitants of the City, which has great historical and cultural significance as a place for ceremony, gathering, trade, and exchange.
The program is designed to increase participation in and access to Toronto Arts Council funding by Indigenous artists, while increasing the creation and presentation of high-quality Indigenous art in the City.
