The following is excerpted from a call issued by the City of Vancouver.
Emerging artists across all disciplines living in the City of Vancouver who have an interest in building their careers and working with young people in an arts-based capacity are invited to apply for Creative Spark Vancouver.
This grant looks to support:
Emerging artists looking to explore career opportunities
Artists interested in working with young people (ages 5-24) and who need support to start
Project ideas that don't have the funds to cover the required materials and supplies
The artist's project must engage young people (ages 5-24) and focus on arts-based learning in any artistic discipline. Creative Spark Vancouver enables emerging artists to gain experience on small projects that could lead to new career opportunities, new community relationships, different perspectives on arts and education, future learning opportunities and exciting multi-faceted projects.
Eligible applicants are emerging artists of any age in any artistic discipline who are residents of the City of Vancouver, or members of Musqueam, Squamish or Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
