Animating Historic Sites Grant Program

Toronto Arts Council has partnered with City of Toronto Museum & Heritage Services and Evergreen Brick Works to provide opportunities for artists to re-imagine and animate select Toronto historic sites, community museums and Evergreen Brick Works through engagement with their histories, local contexts, and communities.

The Animating Historic Sites program provides funding to professional artists, arts organizations and collectives working in any artistic discipline to plan or create and deliver free site-specific programming that responds to or interprets the selected sites. This grant may cover up to 100% of project costs.

This program envisions historic sites as “living museums” - vital public spaces of social interaction, where the past provides creative context for the future.

For information on program guidelines, eligibility criteria and past recipients, check out the Toronto Arts Council website
