$1.5 Million in New Indigenous-Art Awards Announced
As part of its plans to increase support for Indigenous arts practice, The Hnatyshyn Foundation is launching REVEAL Indigenous Art Awards to honour Indigenous Canadian artists working in all artistic disciplines. The comprehensive program of awards and promotional activities, including 150 cash awards of $10,000 each to be awarded in 2017, will fuel the creation of new artistic works and leave a lasting cultural legacy.
The Awards are intended to recognize emerging and established Indigenous artists working in traditional or contemporary practices. The awards will be given in six artistic categories including dance, music, theatre, literature, film/video (media arts), and visual arts/fine craft.
The Hnatyshyn Foundation will begin accepting applications starting on March 1. The deadline for applications is June 1. More information will be available at rjhf.com/indigenousawards.
