The Alberta Foundation for the Arts announces the Arts Presenting Grant Stream
The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) announces the arrival of the new Arts Presenting grant stream as part of the Arts Organizations Operational Grant Program. The Arts Presenting grant stream combines the former Community Presenting and Arts Festival project grant streams.
The introduction of the Arts Presenting grant stream allows for festival and presenting activities by the same organization, clarifies eligibility requirements and further increases administrative efficiency leading to an improved grant process.
The Arts Presenting grant stream application annual deadline is November 15. To ensure a smooth transition for clients of the Community Presenting and Arts Festivals grant streams:
- Clients preparing to apply to the July 15, 2011 Community Presenting intake will be able to claim eligible events from July 1, 2010 to November 14, 2011.
- Returning Arts Festivals clients will be allowed to claim eligible events from November 15, 2010 to November 14, 2011.
Clients interested in applying for funding through the Arts Presenting grant stream can find the guidelines on the AFA website at www.affta.ab.ca/organization-operational-grant-program.aspx.
The AFA Board of Directors and Alberta Culture and Community Spirit will continue to work together to find ways to better meet the needs of Alberta’s diverse arts communities.
