Individual Artists

The Individual Artists program is intended solely for Aboriginal artists who have a demonstrated commitment to their artistic practice in any artistic discipline—visual, music, dance, theatre, literary or media, and including the contemporary practice of traditionally based forms.

Applicants should have completed basic training in their field (learned from a mentor artist, post-secondary education or other training), demonstrated their commitment to their artform, and be working to develop their activities to a professional or advanced skill level.

Aboriginal Arts Development Awards are meant to assist Aboriginal artists and arts professionals with:
  • increasing their skills and knowledge through advanced mentorship and training
  • pursuing new approaches or techniques in their art practice
  • gaining the recognition of their peers (artists who work in the same artistic tradition)
  • developing a history of public presentation (not necessarily in publicly funded venues)
  • devoting more time to their work
