Canada Council for the Arts Media Arts Program - Research and Production Grants for New Media and Audio Artists

Research Grants Component

Mid-career or established applicants: 
from $3,000 to $20,000

Production Grants Component
Emerging applicants: up to $20,000

Mid-career or established applicants: 
- in new media: up to $60,000
- in audio: up to $35,000

These grants assist Canadian artists working with new media or audio technologies as means of artistic expression. Grants cover artist's subsistence costs as well as the direct costs of research, creative development and production of artworks created with new media or audio technologies.

To ensure the vitality and continued excellence of new media and audio art, Canada Council for the Arts grants help support professional artists engaged in creating independent artworks; that is, where the artist maintains complete control over the work.

The program has two components, Research Grants and Production Grants.
This Canada Council program is accessible to Aboriginal artists and artists from diverse cultural and regional communities of Canada.

Grants awarded through this program support independent Canadian artists making a creative use of technology or audio for the purpose of research or production of works in new media or audio.

Priority is given to projects that involve innovation and artistic expression. Innovation may consist of a renewal of formal elements in terms of style, technique or process. It can also be based on the originality of the subject or content of the project, or on the uniqueness of the artist's perspective or process of expression. Only the most innovative proposals are supported.

Priority is also given to projects that demonstrate the development of an individual style or expressive process, as well as a commitment to questioning and expanding the discipline.

Eligible projects may be in the form of works integrating technology or robotics, audio artworks, installations, performances, immersive environments, web art, VJing, sound sculptures or soundscapes, radiophonic or electronic art and interactive works.
Only independent projects are eligible for this program.

All applicants must be Canadian citizens or have permanent resident status. All applicants must meet the Canada Council's definition of a professional artist.

Emerging, mid-career and established artists are eligible for the Production Grants component.

Mid-career and established artists are eligible for the Research Grants component. Emerging artists are not eligible for this component.
