Province awards money to 32 projects
Artists from various disciplines across Prince Edward Island will receive government grants to pursue their craft.
A total of $100,000 was awarded to 32 projects by established and emerging artists in film and media arts, music, theatre, crafts, visual arts, interdisciplinary arts, writing and publishing.
Grant winners were selected by a 12-member jury of their arts community peers from 89 applicants. The process is modeled on the practice followed by the Canada Council of Arts.
The department acknowledges the interest in the grants by artists and the thoughtful consideration of the jurors. The next round of funding for arts grants is expected to begin this spring.
The list of grant recipients and their projects is now available at www.princeedwardisland.ca/artsgrants.
