Toronto Arts Council/Toronto Arts Foundation

Toronto Arts Council (TAC) has been supporting artists and arts organizations with responsive and innovative granting programs since 1974. Our vision, shared with our affiliated organization, Toronto Arts Foundation, is Creative City: Block by Block - working to connect every Toronto neighbourhood with the transformative social and economic benefits of the arts. Committed to inclusion and diversity, we support individual artists and arts organizations of every size and discipline. Our core principles are excellence, innovation and accessibility.
Today, TAC grants lead to exhibitions, performances, readings and workshops seen annually by over 5 million people. Through our ongoing funding, TAC cultivates a rich engagement between artists and audiences. We are proud to reflect Toronto’s vibrancy through the diversity of artists, arts communities and audiences that we serve.
