Grant Programs – Programmes de subvention
The PEI Council of the Arts offers three main funding programs for professional artists, in order to support Island artists in all stages of the artistic process:
1. Professional Development Grants fund skills development opportunities for artists and arts managers.
2. Creation/Production Grants assist in the production of artistic works.
3. Dissemination/Presentation Grants enable artists to share their completed works with the community.
Before you begin the application process, you should carefully read the application guidelines and forms for the program that best fits your funding needs. If this is your first time applying, we also recommend that you read our Step-by-Step Guide. All applicants are encouraged to contact the Program Officer prior to applying to discuss requirements and eligibility.
The purpose of the Prince Edward Island Council of the Arts grant funding is to promote and support the creation and presentation of works of art, and to develop the capacity of artists and arts organizations throughout the Prince Edward Island. Our grant programs are not income support, but are merit based on the proposal submitted for each individual round. Grant proposals are adjudicated through the process of peer assessment, thereby empowering the members of the arts community to determine the best investment of public arts funds in a fair and objective manner.
