WHAT DOES THIS PROGRAM SUPPORT?
Newcomer and Refugee Artist Mentorship program provides support for newcomer and refugee artists to develop their artistic practice and to further their integration and inclusion to Toronto. We define a newcomer as: an immigrant or refugee who has lived in Canada for less than 7 years; a refugee is a person who was forced to leave their home country and is now located in Canada.
The total grant amount is $10,000. $5,000 is paid directly to the newcomer or refugee artist. $5,000 is paid directly to the mentor.
