Apply for UNTITLED: Public Art Grants by March 18

The City of Vancouver is providing grants to Vancouver-based professional not-for-profit arts and culture organizations and local First Nations Band Councils of up to $100,000 to fully fund public art projects which are significant in scale, conceptual innovation or the potential for public engagement.

We are interested in proposals that provide meaningful commissioning opportunities for professional artists, are artist-led and demonstrate strong commitments to advancing artists’ creative, critical investigation and experimentation. We are looking to support the realization of stand-alone, one-time projects that are identifiable as unique and significant public artworks. This is an opportunity for organizations to move outside of their usual programming and for artists to advance their practice in a significant way.
