A new Special Projects program has been established to fund online artistic and cultural performances during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program, launched today by the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, aims to address some of the challenges social isolation has caused for professional artists and for people who enjoy art and culture.

Artists who have had their exhibition, project, showcase or performance cancelled due to the pandemic can receive up to $2,000 for an artistic presentation on social media. Cultural businesses or entrepreneurs who use digital means to promote themselves or their products in a new way are also eligible to apply.

Arts organizations and similar associations may also apply. All proposals must respect any physical distancing and self-isolation directives issued by the provincial government.

Information on the Special Projects program is available online here:
