Our Goal

Our goal is accomplished through the implementation of Cultivating Growth: A Five Year Action Plan for Creative and Cultural Industries.

Grant Programs

Cultural organizations are eligible for supports to build industry and/or community capacity. Community-based festivals and events are supported through a grant program. We can also connect your creative industry business with our business development and growth specialists.

PEI Arts Grant

The mandate of the PEI Arts Grants is to support, assist, encourage and represent the arts community in the province. Funding is available to Prince Edward Island artists through a juried grant application process.  You can view past and current publications of the Artist Grants Program Report here.

Cultural Organization Supports

We work together with cultural organizations and creative industry associations to provide initiatives that promote and encourage professionalization, organizational capacity and ability to expand services, access to training, and artistic experimentation.
