Artist Enhancement Grant

Artist Enhancement NSG* was developed several years ago as a way to recognize artists in the South Vancouver community who have the capacity to enhance community art projects with their skills, talent and can work with community members in the creative process.

An Artist Enhancement NSG offers $500 for project expenses and an additional $500 to pay an artist. This project should be led by a minimum of two people: the project leader who submits the application and the artist. To learn more and submit an Artist Enhancement NSG, contact Mark or Emily (Community Coordinator), at nsg@southvan.org

*NOTE: This grant stream is not offered in most communities and therefore cannot be found on the NSG website.
