About Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants (vancouverfoundationsmallarts.ca)

The Downtown East Side Small Arts Grants program is intended for artists who demonstrate a history of original art practice, and show a vital engagement with the Downtown Eastside community. With small grants of $500 – $1,000, the program is an opportunity for local artists to take their art to the next level.

In 2009, Vancouver Foundation started the grant program, in partnership with the Carnegie Community Centre, to give Downtown Eastside (DTES) artists the opportunity to advance their careers by expanding their portfolios and showcasing their work.

We have been funding a very wide range of media including music, theatre, writing, photography, pottery, textiles, jewellery making, carving, painting, animation, dance, mixed-media, performance, video and others.
