Deadline for Exhibition Assistance Looms

Every year Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre is a Recommender for the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) Exhibition Assistance Awards. Our next and last deadline for this round of awards is Thursday, January 15th, 2009.

The program provides grants of $500 to $1,500 to assist individual artists with costs related to presenting their work for an exhibition. This program is open to Ontario-based professional visual artists, craft artists and media artists who have a confirmed, upcoming public exhibition. If your residence falls within zone 4 of the OAC's list of Exhibition Assistance Recommenders (see Map) you may send us your application in correspondance with the requirements of the OAC.

Please visit the OAC's website for further information and to obtain the application form: www.arts.on.ca/Page122.aspx

Applications must be submitted prior to the dates of the artist's exhibition. Applications may not be submitted more than one year in advance of the exhibition. Artists will be notified of the results of their application by Modern Fuel shortly following the deadline. Contact Modern Fuel (613-548-4883 or modernfuel@bellnet.ca) if you have any further questions.
