Check out the Ontario Arts Council’s Artists in Communities and Schools Projects program if you have a great initiative in mind. Grants range from $2,000 to $25,000 and the next deadline is June 20, 2017.
Per the OAC website (@ONArtsCouncil):
The program supports the research, development and realization of community-engaged arts projects. Activities involve professional Ontario artists and community members working together to develop and design a creative experience. These experiences may include co-creation. Skill building is a core component of projects. The grant falls into five categories.
