Untitled is an invitation from the City of Vancouver Public Art program to Vancouver-based professional not-for-profit arts and culture organizations and local First Nations Band Councils to submit applications for artist-led public art projects for 2020/2021.

About the grant

We're providing grants of up to $100,000 to fully fund public art projects which are significant in scale, conceptual innovation, or the potential for public engagement.

We're interested in proposals that provide meaningful commissioning opportunities for professional artists, are artist-led and demonstrate strong commitments to advancing artists’ creative, critical investigation and experimentation.

We're looking to support the realization of stand-alone, one-time projects that are identifiable as unique and significant public artworks. This is an opportunity for organizations to move outside of their usual programming and for artists to advance their practice in a significant way.
