What the grant supports

The grant helps cover the costs of travel expenses to specific market opportunities. In most cases, the creative entrepreneur has been invited to participate in a particular market. For example:

  • musicians who are invited to showcase at a festival or conference

  • filmmakers who will pitch a film (at an advanced stage of development) at a market

  • craftspeople who have been invited to exhibit and sell at a curated gift fair

  • artists who have been invited to show a solo exhibition at a gallery

  • a book publisher to attend a book fair

NEW FOR 2018-19
