ArtReach’s 2017 Granting Round is Open!

NEW ARTREACH GRANT DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 1, 2017!

ArtReach is distributing $270,000 in grants to youth arts projects in Toronto!
If this is something that could support your work, we want to hear from you! 
This funding is available thanks to ArtReach’s partnership with the Toronto Arts Council. Learn more here!

We are currently accepting applications from young people running projects in Toronto that: 
  • Increase access to quality arts opportunities that encourage creative expression and involve meaningful engagement of youth (ages 13 – 29) in Toronto
  • Promote social inclusion and provide opportunities for youth to develop leadership skills, capacity and opportunities within their communities and the initiatives they lead
  • Provide opportunities for youth to benefit from both the intrinsic (e.g. enjoyment, creative expression) and instrumental value (e.g. community engagement, skills development, social change) of the arts
  • Involve youth in project development, implementation and evaluation
  • Involve artist(s) with relevant experience and reach into participating communities
