This fund will provide up to $50,000 to support initiatives which contribute to the resiliency of the arts sector through adapted approaches to their business and artistic practices. This could include partnerships or mergers, or new platforms for content delivery or community engagement all with the hopes of ensuring long term sustainability. This fund will invest in those organizations that are pivoting to reflect the new realities facing the sector. The Resiliency Fund is intended to invest in strategies supported by strong operational capacity and governance.
This program will be administered through two intakes, with a pool of $575,000 each. If the funds from the first intake are not fully expended, they will be rolled over into the second round.
The total funding available for this program is $1,150,000.
