Special creation fund, New Chapter, for 150th Anniversary of Confederation
The Canada Council for the Arts is marking the 150th Anniversary of Confederation with a special program to support the creation and sharing of exceptional artistic and literary works. With renewed investment in the arts and culture, we look forward to funding inspiring works that will help Canadian artists to envision and create our shared future. These works will encourage public engagement in the arts and will promote outreach locally, nationally and internationally.
The purpose of the program is to:
- offer all Canadians a wide array of powerful, daring, and exceptional artistic experiences
- provide artists, artists’ groups/collectives and arts organizations with means to take greater risks and develop projects on a greater scale and scope than their usual activities. These one-time projects will serve to advance their own development and that of their arts practices.
- strengthen the presence of the arts in conversations about the future of the country, locally, nationally and internationally.

Deadlines to apply are July 4, and October 31, 2016.
