About the Nan Yeomans Grant for Artistic Development
The Nan Yeomans Grant for Artistic Development aims to help young visual artists and/or artisans further their artistic growth and education. It awards one annual grant of $2,500 to an emerging artist under the age of 40, who may be practicing in any visual medium including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, installation, pottery, fabric, glass, metal, film and/or video. All applicants must have an address in the Kingston area, which includes the City as well as the Townships of Loyalist, South Frontenac, Central Frontenac, North Frontenac, and Frontenac Islands. The grant is intended for training or focused creation that will contribute to the artist’s development and career.
Applications are assessed by a jury of peers based on eligibility, financial need, and artistic merit. The grant is made possible through an endowment fund administered by the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area.
