Purpose: The Visual Arts Projects program provides grants up to $10,000 to assist organizations, collectives, or independent curators to present projects that exhibit, document or disseminate the work of professional Ontario visual artists, or provide professional development opportunities for artists.

The program also provides grants to independent curators to undertake research and write about Ontario visual artists or arts practice or develop exhibition projects.

Organizations receiving operating support from the visual arts office are not eligible. Eligible projects include exhibitions, visual arts festivals, catalogues, publications, lectures, workshops, etc. Projects must pay fees to professional artists.
