Opportunity Fund

Apply for a grant to help continue your professional development, build skills, share your artistic work, and teach others.

The Opportunity Fund aims to support artists in activities that continue their education and skill building, or helps them share their work or teach others. Also, teachers may use this fund for field trips. This is a pilot program and our guidelines will be evolving.
