The Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund (EATF) is a joint project of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation. The EATF is designed to invest in Edmonton’s creative community and to encourage artists to stay in our community. The funds are intended to offset living and working expenses, allowing the artist to devote a concentrated period of time to his/her artistic activities, career enhancement and/or development.
The Edmonton Arts Council is the administrator of the award process which includes inviting Edmonton area residents to apply, appointing a jury of peers to adjudicate all applicants, and presenting the jury’s recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Edmonton Arts Council for approval.
