Project Grants assist individuals and groups to undertake projects of cultural benefit to the community.

This program fosters innovation, creativity and experimentation in the arts and sharing those experiences with members of the larger Salt Spring Island community.

With limited funding, the funding program is not able to support annually recurring events. Rather it seeks to catalyze new artistic approaches and collaborations and facilitate the public performance and exhibits of those initiatives. While not a condition of eligibility, applicants are encouraged to use Mahon Hall as the venue for public exhibits and performances.

Proposals must be for an artistic or cultural endeavour within the mandate of the SSAC and of benefit to Salt Spring Island.

Applicants must be based on Salt Spring Island and be Arts Council members. You can purchase your SSAC membership here.
