Every year we award a grant of $8000.00 to six individual artists in the areas of Visual Art, Dance, Theatre, Literature, Film and Video, and Music. Recipients are recommended for this award by the Ontario Arts Council juries who put names forward from their own individual juries. You can not apply for this grant except through applying to the Ontario Arts Council.
Imagination, originality and the determination to achieve are taken into consideration. The concern is not so much to pick future stars as to reward and encourage people who we believe will go on to do interesting work.
