NOW OPEN: Aboriginal Arts Development Awards

First Peoples' Cultural CouncilHello Funds Fans.  This just in!

The Deadline for the next Aboriginal Arts Development Awards (2012/2013) is October 15th, 2012.
The Awards assist Aboriginal artists to:

  • advance their work and artistic skills through mentorship and training
  • gain the recognition of their peers
  • develop a history of public presentation (not necessarily in publicly-funded venues)
  • devote more time to the creation of new work

The Awards assist Aboriginal organizations to:

  • enhance their activities as an arts and culture organization or collective
  • advance the capacity and sustainability of their organization for the benefit of the artists and audiences they serve
  • enhance their connections to other arts organizations or networks

Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to their artistic practice and development in any artistic discipline—visual, performing, literary, media, including the contemporary practice of traditionally based forms.

For more information please contact Cathi Charles Wherry: or Steven Davies:
*For the purpose of this program, the term “Aboriginal artists” include status, non-status, Métis and Inuit practitioners.
