Per the TAC website:
Toronto Arts Council has partnered with City of Toronto Museum Services and the Evergreen Brick Works to provide opportunities for artists to re-imagine and animate six Toronto Heritage sites and the Brick Works through engagement with their histories, local contexts, and communities.
TAC has two distinct funding envelopes: 1) Arts Discipline funding (e.g. discipline-specific project grants and operating grants) and 2) Strategic funding (e.g. Animating Historic Sites, Animating Toronto Parks, Artists in the Library, etc.). Applicants are eligible to receive only one grant from each funding envelope per calendar year. Applications to the Animating Historic Sites program fall within the Strategic Funding envelope. Any other Strategic Program grants must be complete with a final report filed and approved to meet eligibility criteria. (*Please note: Newcomer and Refugee Artist Mentorship grants do not fall under the category of Strategic funding).
