What we're asking for...

We want the Alberta Foundation for the Arts to return the funding for the Artists & Education grant stream to what it was before the disproportionate funding cuts. 

The Artists & Education grant offers students throughout Alberta the chance to work directly with artists to gain hands-on experience in theatre, dance, visual arts, and writing. Without this funding, many schools are not able to provide these opportunities to students.



As you can see, 50% of the 2015 AFA Funding cut was taken from the Artists & Education Grant stream. Asking the AFA to bring the Artists & Education Grant back up to it's previous $1 million funding will take only 10% of the 2017 funding increase.
