Aboriginal Curatorial Projects

Program for: All

Purpose: The Aboriginal Curatorial Projects program provides grants up to $30,000 to assist independent Aboriginal curators or public art galleries, artist-run centres and other presenting organizations, working with Aboriginal curators, to undertake a visual, media arts or craft exhibition project that presents and documents the work of professional artists.

The Aboriginal Curatorial Projects program will fund visual, media art and craft exhibitions (and related publications) curated by Aboriginal curators, and taking place in an Ontario venue.

The program will support opportunities for Aboriginal curators to work with mentors to further develop capacities (including research, writing, design, administration, documentation) relating to curatorial practice.
