Media Arts

Close
OAC offers several programs for individuals working in media arts. We also fund the organizations that help artists create, distribute, screen, exhibit and perform their work and otherwise engage with audiences and communities.

In fulfilling its mandate, the OAC serves one of the most diverse cultural, racial, linguistic and Indigenous populations in Canada. Through its programs and services, the OAC supports artists, organizations and communities across Ontario, and welcomes all forms of artistic expression and practice.
