Funding & Advocacy
In 2007 the Kingston Arts Council was hired to administer the City of Kingston Arts Fund (CKAF). Since then, CKAF has awarded over 2.6 million dollars through 163 grants to organizations and collectives in our community.
In addition, the KAC administers the Nan Yeomans Grant For Artistic Development. In 2013, the Ontario Arts Council engaged a Cultural Animator through the KAC to connect artists and organizations in community arts projects and apply for funding through the OAC's Artist in the Community/Workplace grant program.
The KAC is committed to providing access to granting programs, and holds workshops and info sessions for artists in the community and co-presents sessions with representatives from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area, the Ontario Arts Council and others.
The Kingston Arts Council advocates for the arts at a local level as well as provincial and federal levels in order to advance appreciation and funding for the arts. Read more
