Animating Toronto Parks

Toronto Arts Council is launching a pilot program: Animating Toronto Parks. The 2016 program will provide funding to professional artists, organizations and collectives to support free arts programming in any of 23 selected Toronto parks located outside of the downtown core.

Animating Toronto Parks is a pilot program that will provide funding to professional artists, organizations and collectives to support free arts programming in selected Toronto parks. For the purposes of this program, “arts programming” includes the presentation of dance, literary arts, music, theatre, visual arts and media arts, community-engaged work and any combination of the above. Animating Toronto Parks is a component of the Arts in the Parks initiative which is managed by Toronto Arts Foundation and Toronto Arts Council (TAC) in partnership with City of Toronto Arts & Culture Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation (PF&R) and community partner Park People.

The deadline for grant applications is January 11, 2016.
