2013 Cultural Grants Program

Just a reminder that the deadline for applying for a Cultural Grant is 4:30 pm on Monday January 7, 2013.  All of the necessary forms can be accessed from our website www.barrie.ca.  Click on Arts, Culture and Tourism. 

Please note that there have been some minor changes made to the granting program this year, primarily in respect to individual artist applicants.  In an effort to ensure that the granting program is serving Barrie well, we are requesting that individual artists provide proof of residency along with their applications.  This can be accomplished in one of two ways.  For those that prefer to mail in their applications they will be encouraged to attach a photocopy of their driver’s license or an appropriate piece of identification that proves their current residence is within Simcoe County.  If applicants do not wish to mail in their applications, they are welcome to drop them off at the Department of Culture, 24 Maple Avenue, Barrie – second floor.  When dropping off their application they will be asked to provide proof of residency to the Culture Officer, Development or another Department of Culture staff.

It is also important to note that individuals that are employed either full time, part time or on contract with the City of Barrie who are directly employed by the Department of Culture, may not apply during the year in which they are employed.

Personal information collected as part of this application process is under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c.25, as amended and will be used for the purpose of evaluating submissions for the Cultural Grant Program by the jury panel and City staff. When the process is complete, the names of the individuals that received funding, the amount they received and in which category – whether project or operating will be made public.   

No other personal information will be released without the express written permission of the grant applicant.  Questions about this collection should be directed to the Culture Officer, Development, Department of Culture, 70 Collier Street, Barrie, Ontario L4M 4T5, (705) 739-4220 Ext. 4794.
