Kajungiqsaut Grants is a new funding initiative dedicated to supporting Inuit working in the arts. Co-developed in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts, Kajungiqsaut are accessible, culturally relevant funding that support Inuit creatives to pursue their many and multi-faceted ambitions - especially first-time applicants. Kajungiqsaut values self-determination, skills development, and the crucial time needed to dream, grow, and create throughout an individual’s journey in the arts.
The Inuit Art Foundation is proud to support Inuit creatives through Kajungiqsaut and strongly encourages applicants from any stage in their artistic careers to apply!
Sutaarutit (To Gain Material)
Getting tools and materials to make work can be one the first challenges artists face to creating new pieces. Sutaarutit builds on the IAF’s existing partnership with the Ontario Arts Council’s Indigenous Visual Artist Materials grant and provides opportunities for artists to fund these purchases. Grants of $500 or $1,000 are available and emerging artists are strongly encouraged to apply.
If you live inside Ontario, please apply through the OAC.
Iniqarvik (To Have Space)
All artists need room to breathe, time to think and experiment. Iniqarvik provides Inuit creatives from all disciplines the financial support to research, experiment, begin or complete new works, or plan future creations. Small scale proposals from all disciplines will be accepted for grants of $3,500.
Turaagaq is designed for those who envision larger projects and to help bring your creative visions to life. Proposals from all disciplines will be accepted for grants of $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000.
