Individual Project Grants

*UPDATE* 

With the possibility of an impending postal strike, the AFA will be accepting Audio/Video support materials for the September 1 deadline for Individual Project Grants directly through email. Please send your Audio/Video samples to the appropriate grant stream email address listed below. Please include your full name, project name and GATE project number in your email.

Please note that these email addresses are specifically for the submission of Audio/Visual support material. Full applications, including all other support material (i.e. project descriptions, still images, c.v.’s etc.) must still be submitted through the GATE online granting system.

Emails to these addresses will not receive a direct response or reply. For questions or concerns about your overall grant application, please contact the appropriate Arts Development Consultant listed under your discipline’s guidelines.


The Individual Artists Project Grant program supports the development of individual Alberta artists, traditional Aboriginal artists, arts administrators, and artist ensembles by providing a grant for a specific project.

Applications must be complete, as per stream guidelines and checklist requirements, and submitted through our online application process. Please click here for tips on successfully completing the application
