The goal of the City’s Artist Grant Program is to provide small grants to help Port Moody artists complete art-related projects, or to assist event organizers in realizing small events. Grants are intended to provide one-time funding rather than annual funding, and are not available to individuals or groups receiving other funds or fee waivers from the City. Applicants may apply for up to $1,000; the award may be less than the amount requested.

Examples of eligible art-related projects or events include:

  • a small community event that needs assistance with paying for liability insurance, advertising, and/or performers;
  • a Port Moody artist who wishes to take part in an exhibition;
  • a band that wants to rent some equipment for a performance; or
  • an artist or group that needs assistance with covering the cost of a facility rental.

If you are seeking annual financial assistance and/or in-kind support to host a festival or event in Port Moody, please visit the City’s Festival and Special Event Assistance Program webpage.

This grant program is open to:

  • individual artists (or artist collectives) living in Port Moody; and
  • individuals/groups wishing to host an event/activity for the benefit of Port Moody residents.

Eligible project expenses include:

  • artist fees;
  • artist supplies;
  • event supplies;
  • event programming;
  • marketing;
  • exhibition fees; and
  • insurance.

The Arts Artist Grant Program is not intended to provide operating funding or ongoing/annual funding, and cannot be used to pay for an organizer’s time or an organizer’s staff time.

This program is NOT open to:

  • organizations or individuals currently receiving other forms of financial assistance from the City of Port Moody, including fee waivers;
  • larger, established events;
  • projects and events that do not have an arts focus
