Grants

OVERVIEW

 ArtReach's granting program supports community-based arts programming led by youth artists and youth-led groups/ collectives/ organizations that serve youth from marginalized populations in Toronto who face systemic barriers to accessing high-quality arts opportunities.

 

Our grant funds are available each year thanks to our partnership with the Toronto Arts Council (TAC). Learn more about this partnership here.

ArtReach runs one granting round annually, with applications opening December 1st, and due February 1st at 11:59pm each year.
