Artists from across Prince Edward Island continue to enrich the province’s cultural life with the help of provincial government grants.

Another $50,000 has been awarded in fall 2017 to 17 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 six-member jury of their arts community peers from 66 applicants. The process is modeled on the practice followed by the Canada Council of Arts.

To build on this investment, a new long-term plan for culture on Prince Edward Island will be released. The recently-released strategy includes a creative industry market program to support collaboration among artists, enterprises, and industry development groups to grow creative business and better access to new markets.
