Eligibility:  Applicants to this category are NOT required to be incorporated as a non-profit society.  Similarly, it is NOT necessary that applicants to this category have an arts mandate.  Applications are actively encouraged from local community groups of all kinds.


Description: Community Art Projects …

  • incorporate a wide range of arts practices that involve and/or engage the community;
  • are most commonly rooted in participatory arts practices that can be applied across a wide range of creative disciplines;
  • support artists working with communities on issues of mutual interest or concern; 
  • provide an opportunity for artists to work with a given community to build relationships and develop innovative, arts-based or other creative strategies to engage people in issues that are important to the community;
  • are initiatives that enable members of the community to directly experience or participate in acts of creativity and/or artistic production;
  • may involve amateur, community-based, student, emerging or established professional artists, but should always articulate a clear sense of how the project benefits, engages or involves the community;
  • may include one-off initiatives or recurring projects;
  • may be proposed by or entail partnerships with non-resident groups, but funds are only available to support activities that take place within the City or District of North Vancouver. 


In order to ensure that the proposed project is supported by an adequate understanding of community arts practices, community group applicants may be encouraged – on a case-by-case basis – to partner with arts groups in the delivery of the project.
