Artsweek returns this year at the usual time, with a COVID 19 responsive version of the popular festival that brings new works by local artists to audiences – in unexpected places.  This year’s Festival will combine commissions and co-productions with projects selected by a peer assessment committee from the applications to this Call. Artsweek takes over City and all events FREE!  It’s a multi-disciplinary extravaganza of music, visual arts, media arts, literary and spoken word arts, puppetry, theatre, performance, projections, poetry and circus arts. 

 Applications for project grants are welcome from individual artists as well as arts organizations and arts collectives.

 Please check out the Artsweek 2021 page for more details, and stand by for information on Application Workshops.
