Call for Applications for 2014 John Hobday Awards in Arts Management

Are you an established or mid-career arts manager? Are you looking for professional development or mentorship opportunities? The John Hobday Award in Arts Management offers up to two awards of $10,000 annually. 

Arts managers from any artistic discipline supported by the Canada Council for the Arts may apply for the awards.

There are two distinct awards:

  • The Professional Development and Renewal award allows an outstanding established or mid-career arts manager to take part in a short-term, recognized program, seminar or workshop for professional renewal and revitalization.
  • The Mentorship award allows an exceptional mid-career arts manager who is seeking to acquire different knowledge, experience and skills to be mentored by an outstanding established or mid-career arts manager.

The John Hobday Awards in Arts Management are intended for professional development of individual arts managers and not for direct assistance to arts organizations.
