Grants Open for Visual Arts Sector (Canada)
Applications are now open for the Visual Arts Sector to provide support to groups and collectives for the creation and exhibition of various forms of visual arts, influenced by Ukrainian heritage and expressing a tangible connection to the Ukrainian Canadian experience.
The Shevchenko Foundation’s grant-giving stewardship extends priority to projects and programs that:
Contribute to enriching the Canadian experience with the beauty, passion, and diversity of Ukrainian Canadian culture;
Contribute to strengthening the Ukrainian community in Canada;
Share Ukrainian Canadian cultural contributions with a broad and diverse public on a community, regional or national level;
Exhibit financial capability to undertake and sustain the project and/or program within the boundaries of a business plan, either as an organization or an individual;
Employ new technologies and partnership models on how Ukrainian Canadian cultural heritage is created, produced, disseminated, and preserved.
Grant applications must be made in advance of the starting date of the project.
Submission of an application is not a guarantee that the Shevchenko Foundation will provide financial grant assistance.
The Shevchenko Foundation funds up to 50% of total project or program costs of successful applications contingent upon budget resources for the given grant deadline.
The Shevchenko Foundation strives to create a balance between supporting established returning applicants, new applicants, and applicants exploring emerging practices in the broad scope of cultural development.
The Shevchenko Foundation does not claim any copyright on projects receiving funding, unless an express agreement is otherwise reached.
Grants can be used to cover costs and expenses associated with the project, but cannot be used to cover expenses for general living allowances for project participants.
Canadian not-for-profit community organizations, artist collectives, Canadian registered private businesses whose activities occur primarily in Canada, and Canadian chartered educational institutions.
Canadian not-for-profit professional, semi-professional and amateur groups governed by a board of directors or a body responsible for the organization.
NOTE: It is the responsibility of organizations working with children under the age of 18, who are funded by the Shevchenko Foundation, to ensure that they follow youth protection policies and procedures in their jurisdictions.
