• Artists’ fees – the minimum fee for an individual artist’s in-person time is $75/hour. Artists’ fees for facilitation vary depending on experience, number of artists and customization of the activities. We expect Artists to work with students at least twice to inspire and develop their creativity in the artistic discipline.
  • While some materials cost is expected, as much as possible, artists need to consider what is already available through the schools and their community. Material costs should not exceed 20% of the $1500/school grant including taxes = $300.
  • To ensure schools in all regions have access to diverse arts experiences, travel costs for artists will be covered in addition to the $1500 grant when a qualified local artist is not available in the discipline/specialty. Travel will need to be pre-approved and involve multiple schools within a school board in remote areas.
  • Grants can be leveraged by connecting with other arts and culture funding opportunities, combining for example with Culture’s in the Schools’ Host an Artist or Writer Program.
