Funding for new generation artists living and working on the margins
CUE is a radical arts initiative dedicated to supporting new generation artists who live and work on the margins. We recognize that, throughout history, some of the most important artwork was, and still is, created by artists who practice outside of conventional frameworks–underrepresented artists who, by choice or circumstance, do not participate in capitalist culture nor share in its privileges. There are bright lights shining from the cracks and corners.
APPLY FOR UP TO $1000CUE grants are for artists who:
- Identify as new generation artists (15 – 29 years old) living and working on the margins
- Work in any artistic discipline
- Have a solid idea for an art project that can be completed in 3 months and can be exhibited or presented in some way
- Demonstrate experience in their medium
- Have not received funding from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, or other substantial arts funding
- Connect with CUE before submitting an application
