As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re pleased to announce a new funding program, Pivot for Individuals.

Where the first Pivot program was designed to help organizations and collectives adapt to the impacts of the pandemic, this new program assists individual professional artists, cultural practitioners, and arts administrators to adapt and transition their practice or to undertake learning activities that will sustain or advance their career.

Funding is available up to $12,000. There are two categories that individuals can apply to:

Category 1: Adaptation and Transition

Projects that allow individuals to make bold pivots or transitions in their artistic practice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants may apply to adapt an existing work or body of work or undertake research and establish new approaches to their work.

Category 2: Professional Development

Assistance is available for professional development opportunities or specific learning activities that will sustain or advance an individual’s career.

The deadline for applications is February 16, 2021. You can learn more about the program here.

All applications must be submitted through our online application system. If you’re not yet registered, please do as soon as possible.

If you identify as Deaf and/or as living with a disability/ies and require accommodation or assistance to develop and submit an application to this program please contact the program officer directly or email for more information.
