Culture Projects Grant

Each year, the Culture Projects Grant focuses on current, community-based themes.

2024 theme

The 2024 Culture Projects Grant program aims to support arts and culture initiatives that highlight the City of Mississauga’s 50th anniversary. The program’s theme for 2024 is “Celebrate 50.” The theme was designed to:

  • Help arts and culture groups celebrate and recognize the origins, transformations and potential of the City’s rich and diverse communities through their unique cultural practices.
  • Encourage projects that share underrepresented stories and histories related to Mississauga.

The program will provide project-based grants for arts and culture groups and collectives to:

  • Celebrate the past, present and future of the City with our communities
  • Recognize City’s rich heritage
  • Promote creative and innovative collaborations that highlight the City’s neighbourhoods and artistic communities
  • Inspire cultural practitioners to create a wide variety of artistic experiences using various mediums and channels to celebrate the City’s cultural diversity

The City encourages arts and culture organizations to animate different areas of Mississauga and provide safe environments for people to experience art. Examples of this include intimate events, temporary public art, exhibitions, performances or other activations.
