Subsidies for artists in the visual arts and craft arts : program 2021

Deadline: March 31, 2021

The City of Montreal and le Conseil des arts de Montréal are announcing the launch of the 2021 Visual Arts and Crafts Subsidies Program, whose budget is $ 735,000.

This program provides financial support for occupation of an artist’s studio for creation of original artistic expression or research. Professional artists in visual arts and crafts arts who rent or own a studio space (a building or part of a building) in a NON-residential property are eligible to apply. 2021 program (for 2020 leases) is now open.

The Program 2021 offers for the visual arts and crafts subsidies program:

  • the amount allocated for research-creation spaces is $ 13 per square meter of artist's studio ($ 5.38 on behalf of the City of Montreal and $ 7.62 on behalf of the Conseil des arts de Montreal)
  • an amount of $ 3 per square meter of artist’s studio is allocated for the storage space

An information webinar will be held on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. If you wish to participate, please click here to register.

This Program was made possible thanks to the partnership between the Service de la culture of the City of Montreal and the Conseil des arts de Montréal. All practical information and the application form are available here.
