Six New Arts Projects by Aboriginal Artists Explore Conciliation and Reconciliation for Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.


This initiative aims to promote artistic collaborations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists, investing in the power of art and imagination to inspire dialogue, understanding and change. The Canada Council administers the {Re}conciliation initiative, which was developed by Canada Council, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and The Circle in anticipation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report and recommendations.

A first call for proposals was issued in May 2015. A second will be issued in 2016.

Interested artists and arts organizations will be invited to submit proposals for project funding up to $75,000. Applicants who submitted a proposal in 2015 but did not receive funding are eligible to re-submit to future deadlines.
