This program supports the creation of new works by professional artists in all disciplines including fine crafts, literary, visual, media and performing arts. It also promotes a broad understanding and appreciation of art and artists through professional development, creation and presentation of work. Individual artists may submit one application per grant category per deadline. To encourage equitable distribution of funds, artists can only receive one Creation Grant in a 12-month period.
NEW! - Access Support is a supplement to a project grant that funds individual applicants who self-identify as Deaf, having disabilities or living with mental illness, as well as groups and organizations who want to increase the accessibility to their presentation/production for audience and/or participants. This supplementary grant provides a contribution towards costs for specific services and supports required to carry out a project funded by Arts NS.
Please note, that to receive this supplementary grant, your associated project grant must first be successful. Following this, your Access Support application will be assessed by a program officer.
