Toronto Arts Council’s Newcomer and Refugee Artist Mentorship Grant Information Session
The Toronto Arts Council has created two new granting programs designed to serve newcomers and refugees in Toronto: Newcomer and Refugee Arts Engagement and Newcomer and Refugee Artist Mentorship.
The program provides funding for individual newcomer and refugee professional* artists to be mentored (guided) in their chosen arts discipline. The mentorship application is submitted by the newcomer artist, with comments from the mentor as the co-applicant. Both the applicant and the mentor must identify as professional* artists. The total grant is $10,000. $5,000 is paid directly to the applicant and $5,000 is paid directly to the mentor.
Find more information about the grant here, and attend the Information Session at Scarborough Arts’ Bluffs Gallery on February 21 to learn more.
