The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) supports Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) creativity and celebrates the vitality of diverse cultural and artistic expression.


Indigenous Arts Projects is a multidisciplinary program supporting professional Indigenous artists, ad hoc groups, collectives, and organizations to research, develop, and create new work. The presentation and sharing of Indigenous artistic work and initiatives strengthens and enriches the arts and culture overall, while benefiting both Indigenous artists and their communities.


The program is open to emerging, mid-career, and established Indigenous artists and arts professionals. It welcomes applicants working in both customary/traditional and contemporary Indigenous art expression.

Indigenous OAC staff members administer the program, and applications are assessed by juries comprised of Indigenous artists.


The program has three categories:

  • Indigenous Individuals
  • Indigenous Ad hoc groups and collectives
  • Indigenous Organizations
