The Cultivate: Creative Development Grant Application Approved

I’m thrilled to announce that I have received confirmation that I will be receiving a Research/Creation grant from Canada Council for the Arts.

The Cultivate: Creative Development Grants – Research/Creation Grant was created to provide support to individual artists who are Deaf, have disabilities and/or are living with mental illness to pursue research, creation and production projects in dance, inter-arts, media arts, music, theatre, visual arts and/or writing/literary arts, leading to a new artistic work or body of work intended for public presentation, exhibition, publication or distribution.

There are two categories of support:

Research/Creation Grants provide artists the time and resources to explore, develop and/or create a new artistic work or body of work. This may include the research and development of ideas, concepts, themes or techniques. A completed work or public presentation is not required.

Production Grants support the production of a new work or body of work (which may also include a development or creation phase). Production projects must include a public presentation or exhibition of the work or, in the case of a sound recording, film, video, audio or new media production, include a concrete dissemination plan.

More information about this grant can be viewed here.


We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil  a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
