This program provides funding to enable artists and performers to take advantage of unexpected opportunities where artists would not be able to otherwise participate.
For example, funding through this grant can be used to support an art show, travel or regalia for a performance. The grant allows artists and collectives to respond to new approaches, reduces barriers to opportunities and advances the artist’s skills, knowledge and professional development.
