JRG Grant

JRG Grant for Artists with Disabilities

JRG Society for the Arts is pleased to be partnering with The AMY Project to co-present the inaugural 2018 JRG Grant for Artists with Disabilities.

This grant aims to sponsor artists with disabilities in preparing and presenting artwork across a variety of disciplines. The motivation for the award is the life of Justin R Grant, a Halifax filmmaker who died of ALS too early in his life. Art, music and operating cameras were a passion of his.

The maximum value of grant to be awarded for 2018 is $3500, which will be distributed to one successful applicant. The winner will also be invited to receive the award at an event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in Fall 2018, with travel expenses paid.

JRG Society for the Arts has a broad and encompassing understanding of the term disability, seeing it as any physical, mental or emotional state which the individual needs to overcome in order to deal with the activities of daily life.
