The Canada Council has announced that they will be hosting, with the support of the BC Arts Council, their Collab initiative in Vancouver, January 27 – 30, and in Victoria February 1 – 2.
Collab is a series of free sessions designed to help new and early-career artists apply for their first grant or improve their next grant application.
Collab sessions will answer some of the big questions individuals might have including:
- What is the Canada Council? What does it do, and which of its grant programs can help me?
- Grant applications: What do I need to include in my application, and how can I make it stand out?
- Granting decisions: What’s the overall process, and how will my application be assessed?
- Explore the Canada Council’s online portal for grant applications, and meet with Council staff to discuss specific questions.
These sessions are particularly focused on New and Early Career Artists—and in particular, artists who have never attended an information session and who have yet to apply for a grant. You can find out more at the Canada Council website.
