Funding and Grants Canada

“Each year the S’Cool Life Fund supports on average 100 projects across the country. This year is no different we will be funding 96 projects another phenomenal year. We support DREAMS – Drama, Recreation, Extra-Curricular, Arts, Music, or Sports. Schools that have been successful in receiving a grant have amazed us with their applications for projects reaching the most children with the most interesting things – CLICK HERE FOR EXAMPLES! S’Cool does not look to fund core academic subjects, but instead those areas that fall outside of the core curriculum but are no less important for a child’s development.”

Edmonton Arts Council

Funding and Grants Edmonton, Alberta

Grants Program

“Artists working with communities; communities working with artists.

Community Art is valued for its ability to bring people together in shared, collaborative, creative experiences to express the things that have meaning to us: where we’ve come from, where we’re going, our world, our fears, our dreams, our aspirations. It strengthens the community, develops creativity and increases awareness of the arts in our lives.

The principles behind Community Art projects are artistic exploration, active participation and intentional inclusiveness that allows communities to tell their own stories.”
