OPEN HOUSE

The Arts Fund Board of Directors hosts an informal drop-in Open House for grant

applicants in advance of the Spring and Fall rounds. Board members are available to

share general information about the fund, its mandate and welcome feedback

from applicants.

 

These are not a grant writing workshops because board members are restricted from

providing specific application assistance.

 

Please note that Open House sessions are not taking place during the current gathering restrictions due to COVID-19. Once they are happening again, visit Upcoming Deadlines for details on dates and locations.
