Update on AADA Application Process

September 18, 2017
We are currently processing applications for funding through the 2017/18 Aboriginal Arts Development Awards (AADA) and Aboriginal Youth Engaged in the Arts (AYEA) programs. The AADA and AYEA programs support the development of Aboriginal artists, groups and communities in B.C.

AADA and AYEA includes five programs: Individual Emerging Artists, Organizations and Collectives, Sharing Traditional Arts Across Generations, Organizations and Groups, and Arts Administrator Internships and Mentorships.

Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to their practice in any discipline – visual, music, dance, theatre, literary or media arts – and can work in traditional or experimental forms.

Each year a Peer Adjudication Committee convenes in January and February to select recipients from the many deserving proposals through a rigorous review process. In 2017 over 74 grants were awarded totaling over $971,000.

For more information about the recipients of the 2017 AADA and AYEA grants visit: www.fpcc.ca/arts/programs.
