The Grants to Culturally Diverse Curators for Residencies in the Visual Arts program assists culturally diverse curators at their chosen host organization to develop their curatorial practice. The purpose of this program is to expand the national pool of curatorial professionals who are of African, Asian, Latin American or Middle Eastern origin, and to advance knowledge in Canadian contemporary arts. The curatorial resident and the host organization must apply jointly.
