Funding is intended to promote bold projects that do not fall within the parameters of regular discipline-specific arts opportunities. Applicants must be located in the City of Toronto.
The grant supports innovative and provocative arts projects that demonstrate collaboration, risk-taking, and the sharing of knowledge and leadership. Open Door provides catalyst funding for ideas with the potential to create transformative change in the arts sector.
Applications will be accepted in the following Project Categories:
TAC Accessibility grant: Projects involving Deaf artists and artists with disabilities may apply for an additional TAC grant by completing the Accessibility Expenses section of the application and including the requisite information in their budget.
If there are multiple well-assessed applications of equal merit in an adjudication round but insufficient funds in the grants budget to support all deserving candidates, applications proposed by applicants that self-identify as belonging to one of Toronto Arts Council’s equity priority groups or that primarily involve or serve artists from these groups will be prioritized. For more details, see the Equity Framework here: http://www.torontoartscouncil.org/reports-and-resources/toronto-arts-council-equity-framework/.
