About the Event

Apply for the UP(st)ART $500 Arts Grant! 

UP(st)ART has always been committed to supporting and uplifting the artists in our residences. Through this Arts Grant, we aim to elevate the voices, stories and values of those in marginalized spaces, by providing a platform for success and encouraging the support of the wider UP(st)ART community. We encourage members to apply with a project that involves, tells the story of, or highlights voices that are often excluded from mainstream media, ie. LGBTQ+, black, indigenous & people of color, differently abled, etc. Complete all the required details in THIS ONLINE FORM to be considered for the UP(st)ART Arts Grant, of up to $500 to complete your creative project.
