The Canada Council for the Arts has announced a new funding model set to take effect in 2017.

This dynamic new model consists of six new granting programs, including a dedicated Indigenous program.

With the support of the CCA, Native Earth is thrilled to host a Funding Model Information Session, led by CCA Program Officer Clare Marchand. Clare will review the updated application deadlines, requirements, the introduction of composite grants, and field your questions about the new organization of these programs.

We’re inviting Indigenous artists and the broader artistic community to join us in Paintbox Bistro for this very important information session.

Don’t miss this chance to understand and navigate the new funding model, while connecting and networking with other performing artists, theatre company representatives and arts organizations.

The Artists’ Reception leads into an exciting  night at Weesageechak Begins to Dance 29 featuring dance works by three incredible Indigenous choreographers: Olivia C. Davies (Crow’s Nest and Other Places She’s Gone), Christine Friday (Maggie & Me: The Healing Dance Journey), and Aria Evans (RElaps).
