Calgary Arts Development Short-Term Artist Relief Fund Program

Michelle Mak Community, Finance, Newcomer Information

The Calgary Arts Development Short-Term Artist Relief Fund Program is a temporary one-time program to help address some of the immediate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on artists in Calgary.

“This fund is intended to support artists and freelance cultural workers who have lost income or incurred unrecoverable expenses, related to their artistic work, due to event cancellations or travel disruption for events or opportunities meant to occur between March 12 – April 30.”

You may request up to $1,500 and provide proof of any event or work cancellation/disruption, and financial loss. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until April 30 or until funds are depleted. Applications will only be accepted through Calgary Arts Development’s online grant interface.
