Support for newcomer and refugee artists

Toronto Arts Council has two granting programs for newcomer and refugee artists. Individual artists working in any discipline can apply to develop their arts practice with the help of a mentor through the Newcomer and Refugee Artist Mentorship program. Organizations and collectives that are engaging newcomers and refugees through the arts can apply for funding through the Newcomer and Refugee Arts Engagement program.
