The Visual Arts Section of the Canada Council for the Arts provides a range of grants to recognize and support the independent creative work of professional Canadian artists of all cultures. These grants are intended for artists and independent critics and curators working in the following art forms: visual arts including fine craft and architecture. Travel Grants to Professionals in the Visual Arts contribute toward expenses incurred to travel to an event important to the artist’s, critic’s or curator’s career.

Three categories of support are provided under this program: Presentation Travel, Travel to Artists’ Residencies and Research-Rrelated Travel.

Note: Artists, critics, curators and programmers working in the fields of new media and audio, film and video should apply under the Travel Grants to Media Arts Professionals program. Details >>
