The Canada Council for the Arts and CBC/Radio-Canada present Digital Originals - Micro Innovation Grant Program for the Arts

Location:    This is a virtual or online event or does not take place at one specific physical location. See description for more details.

Countless artistic activities have been cancelled or delayed due to COVID-19, but countless creations have also reached an impressive online audience. The Digital Originals initiative supports and amplifies this new, strong and innovative online relationship between audiences and artists from Canada. Artists, groups or organizations can either adapt their existing work or create a new work for digital dissemination to the Canadian public during the COVID-19 pandemic. Digital Originals offers a $5,000 micro innovation grant from the Canada Council. Funded projects will be housed on a dedicated CBC/Radio-Canada website. In addition, CBC/Radio-Canada will feature selected projects for showcase on at least one of its digital CBC/Radio-Canada platforms. Selected projects for the curated CBC-Radio/Canada showcase will receive a supplemental amount of $1000.
