Mini-Grants Available for Women Artists

Wonder what I can get up to. Maybe something with Typewriters. Creating typewritten art. There was an artist in Montreal who did an amazing thing with a typewriter and writing pages and pages of a long poem. Her and her typewriter were the art creating art and she typed for days while people watched. 

Bourses Tontine Awards - funding women's creativity in Ottawa-Gatineau

Please help spread the word for our second new bilingual micro-grant of the Bourses Tontine Awards.

Every two months we are giving out a micro-grant of $500 to a woman* or group of women* or a person or persons from marginalized genders in the city towards a creative project.

Winning projects will connect to the community and contribute to the vibrancy of the city.

There is a really simple one page online application form to fill out. The deadline for this award is fast approaching and we are doing a last push for applications - March 10, 2014.

It would be awesome if you can help spread the word, and if you're eligible - apply!
