As announced earlier this month, the Canada Council for the Arts has received an additional federal investment of  $116.5 M to support artists and stimulate employment in the arts sector. A portion of $66 M will be invested in the Research and Creation and Concept to Realization components of our Explore and Create program.  

Expanding Canadian Arts Practice

Explore and Create funds Canadian artists, artistic groups and organizations committed to the creation and dissemination of innovative, vibrant and diverse art.

This program advances Canadian artistic practices by encouraging artists to investigate creative processes and take risks that lead to the development of unique works destined to connect with the public.

Explore and Create supports the research, development, creation and production of work, as well as professional development for artists.

The Canada Council for the Arts expects this program to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Canadian artists develop their skills and enrich their knowledge
  • Canadian artists share work in a manner consistent with their artistic vision and intentions
  • new artistic voices emerge
