Calgary Arts Development joins the Rozsa Foundation and Calgary Foundation in this key partnership to help the arts to find new ways to connect with audiences, while also providing Calgarians with the sense of belonging and togetherness they often seek through the arts. These additional funds bring the total funds made available through the Rozsa Foundation's COVID-19 Granting Programs to $750,000.
“It’s really incredible to have Calgary Arts Development, Calgary Foundation, and the Rozsa Foundation team up in this way to meet the needs of the arts community”, says Rozsa Foundation Executive Director Simon Mallett. “Each of us has provided funding to assist the arts sector with the devastating financial impacts of COVID-19, and now we’re working together to help the arts community find new ways to share their work with audiences that will have both short and long term benefits.”
“We are pleased to be able to provide further support to the arts sector during these unprecedented times,” says Calgary Arts Development President & CEO Patti Pon. “Collaborating with the Rozsa Foundation and Calgary Foundation demonstrates how we are working together to uphold the creative forces that make this a great city. Artists have been stepping up through this pandemic and we can’t wait to see how they will continue to use digital platforms to share their creativity with all of us.”
The Online Programming Grant is now available to individual artists, artist collectives, registered non-profit arts organizations and charitable arts organizations. Full details, including eligibility requirements, and links for the online application can be found below:
