WHO WE ARE

What is ArtsNL?
ArtsNL is a non-profit Crown agency created in 1980 by The Arts Council Act. Its mission is to foster and promote the creation and enjoyment of the arts for the benefit of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. The Council is governed by a volunteer board of 13 appointed by government, reflecting regional representation of the province. This includes 10 professional artists who provide sectoral representation of the arts community; one community representative (with an interest in the arts); one business representative (with an interest in the arts); and one representative of the Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development (non-voting). ArtsNL receives an annual grant from the Province to support a variety of granting programs, office administration, and communications. It also seeks support from the public and private sector. It supports the following artistic disciplines: dance, film, multidiscipline, music, theatre, visual art, and writing.

GRANT PROGRAMS

What grant programs does ArtsNL operate?

ArtsNL operates the following granting programs for artists, groups and not-for-profit arts organizations:

  1. The Professional Project Grants Program is available to professional artists, and groups. Grants support projects related to creation, production, operating, professional development, travel, etc. 
  2. The Sustaining Program for Professional Arts Organizationsis available to professional not-for-profit arts organizations that further the arts of Newfoundland and Labrador. Grants support administration and project costs, and provide a guaranteed minimum grant for a three-year period. 
  3. The Annual Operating Program for Professional Arts Organizations is available to professional not-for-profit arts organizations. Applicants can apply for costs related to operating the organization, and creating, presenting, and producing artistic works including artist and technician fees, venue rentals, administration cost, and travel expenses.
  4. The Community Arts Program is available to community based not-for-profit arts organizations and groups. The program funds projects related to arts workshops, presentations, productions, new creations, adjudicator fees, artist fees, and travel costs.
  5. The Professional Artists’ Travel Fundis available to professional artists and groups invited to take part in unexpected activities that will enhance their careers. Such activities include the presentation, development, or celebration of the artist’s work.

ArtsNL operates two Arts in Education programs that support artists who bring their artistic practice into schools. Artists may work with teachers and students on arts integration projects, present workshops to students, or offer performances or presentations of completed work to schools.

  1. The School Touring Program is a partnership with the Cultural Connections Strategy of the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. ArtsNL operates the School Touring Program (STP) to fund professional artists, groups, and not-for-profit arts organizations offering significant tours to schools throughout the province.
  2. ArtsSmarts is a partnership with the Cultural Connections Strategy of the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Statoil, and the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association. ArtsSmarts seeks to afford schools and their communities a chance to explore artistic activities linked to educational outcomes, to encourage students to develop their intellectual skills through active participation in the arts, and to engage Canadians, particularly young people, in artistic activity with a view to developing supporters and practitioners of the arts and to nurturing creative thinkers.

ASSESSMENT

How does ArtsNL assess applications?
ArtsNL uses a Peer Assessment process to review applications submitted for funding.

What is peer assessment?
In the context of ArtsNL, peer assessment is the process of having practicing artists and/or other experts review and assess the merit and viability of applications for funding. Peer assessors recommend which projects should be funded and amounts to award successful applicants. ArtsNL uses peer assessment to determine funding for all of its programs.

Why does ArtsNL use peer assessment?
ArtsNL uses peer assessment for three reasons:

  • To ensure applications in a specific artistic discipline or area are evaluated by qualified individuals with experience in that area, and knowledge of the artistic community
  • To maintain an effective mechanism for ArtsNL to stay connected with the artistic community and its developing trends
  • To maintain the arms-length nature of ArtsNL, and protect arts funding from political influences.

How are peer assessment committees formed?
The program manager/officer selects individuals to serve on peer assessment committees for each of the funding programs administered by ArtsNL. He/she works from a list of artists who have received ArtsNL funding in the past, or have a significant artistic background. This list was compiled by past and present ArtsNL members and staff, and is updated regularly. Peer assessors are selected to maintain a balance of male-female, urban-rural, in-out of province, and Indigenous/Francophone representation requirements. Members of the community are encouraged to recommend people. You may recommend yourself. Recommendations are accepted on an ongoing basis, an official recommendation form is available on the ArtsNL website right here.

An assessor may be used only once in a 12 month period on any peer assessment committee, and only once every two years for a specific program. Assessment committees usually include one ArtsNL member and between two and six members of the artistic community. Some programs, based on their nature, may require expertise from outside the arts community. The Professional Project Grants Program uses seven three-person committees to cover all artistic disciplines. Applications to the Professional Artists’ Travel Fund are reviewed by two assessors due to the responsive nature of the program, and the required two week turn-around on applications. All other programs are assessed by a five or six person assessment committee made up of individual artists representing each artistic discipline reflected in the applications received.

Are peer assessors paid a fee?
Peer assessors for the Professional Project Grants Program, Annual Operating Program for Professional Arts Organizations, Community Arts, School Touring, and ArtsSmarts Programs are paid a $6 per application reading and review of support materials fee, plus a $40 per hour fee for the assessment meeting. Assessment meeting are typically planned so all applications can be assessed in one work day (7 hours). However, if the program manager/officer feels there are too many applications to assess in one day, additional time may be scheduled for the assessment meeting. Typically a rate of about 5 applications processed per meeting hour is used to set the meeting length. The program manager/officer will inform committee members of the expected time required for the meeting(s) when he/she invites them to sit on the committee. Assessors for the Sustaining Program for Professional Arts Organizations are paid a $12 per application reading and review of support materials fee, $40 per hour for the assessment meeting, and $100 for each presentation review they write on an applicant’s artistic work. Assessors are issued cheques within two weeks after they have submitted their completed Assessment Forms to the program manager/officer.

Assessors for the Professional Artists’ Travel Fund are paid $6 per application. These assessors are paid once annually.

A full one hour lunch break will be taken for assessment meetings over 4 hours. Peer assessors are not paid for the lunch break. ArtsNL will provide food for those attending the meeting in person. Out of town assessors joining the meeting via video conference may spend up to $14 for a local lunch. Original receipts and a claim form must be mailed to ArtsNL for reimbursement.

All peer assessment meetings are scheduled between 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

What process is used to assess applications?
For programs that require a peer assessment committee meeting, ArtsNL uses the following method:

  • Each application is reviewed in order, based on its file number.
  • The committee discusses the merits and concerns with each application and tags each as either: F (Fund), PF (Possibly Fund), or DNF (Do Not Fund).
  • In the second round of assessment, only applications tagged PF are reviewed and tagged either F or DNF.
  • Finally, the applications tagged F are discussed to decide the amount they are to be funded.

Throughout this process the committee will attempt to gain consensus, but when this cannot be achieved, a vote in which majority rules decides tagging and funding.

COMPLETING AN ArtsNL APPLICATION FORM

What should I include in my project description?
The quality of your project description is directly related to your project plan. The more clearly you consider what you are going to do and how you are going to do it, the more effective your description will be.

Introduce your project description with a one or two sentence summary that simply states what you want to do and why you want to do it. Use plain language. The project description should also explain:

  • What do you want to do? (What, if anything, will be the end product? How will it be researched and created? How will it be presented? What will you need to make this project happen?)
  • Who will be involved? (Name all the key participants and be sure to include a bio or resume and, if possible, a letter from them discussing their role in the project.)
  • Where will the project take place? (Will you need to travel? If so, where?)
  • When will the project take place? This is a simple time line of what you see happening for your project. It simply shows you have some kind of plan. For example:

                    Creation..…….....................April 1-20 (3 weeks)
                    Production.........................April 22-28 (1 week)
                    Tour...................................May 3-17 (2 weeks)
     
  • Why do you want to do this project? (Why is it important for you as an artist or group to do this project? Is it part of your group’s mandate? Will it stretch you as an artist?)

All applicants are encouraged to contact the program manager/officer for review their application before it is submitted. Bring a copy of the initial draft of your application for comments. This assistance does not guarantee a successful application. An appointment with program staff can be booked online here, or by contacting the ArtsNL office.

What should I consider when completing a budget for my project?
Your budget will be thoroughly checked by ArtsNL and peer assessors. Be as clear and precise as possible in your budget projections and notes. Please note the following when completing your budget:

  • Capital costs (i.e. equipment purchase, computers, etc.) are not eligible for funding by ArtsNL.
  • Living allowances in the Professional Project Grants Program are considered for individual applicants only, and can be considered up to a maximum of $2,000 per month for full time work on a project. If you have other sources of income, this should be subtracted from the maximum living allowance.
  • Ensure you do not exceed the maximum grant request for the program you are applying to. Maximum requests are listed on information sheets and budget forms for each program.
  • Fees and travel costs can only be considered for individuals who are 18 years of age or older.
  • ArtsNL Travel Rates: Mileage: 36.69 cents/km.  Per Diem: maximum $49/day in province and $55/day outside the province. These rates may change without notice.
  • Budgeting should be realistic. Major discrepancies will become obvious in the final report.
  • All funds awarded must be spent in accordance with the project description and budget submitted with your application. You should promptly notify ArtsNL of any significant changes in your project plan (i.e. date changes, change to scope of project, etc.)
  • Be complete and accurate in your budgeting. If you are inexperienced with project budgeting, get help from someone with more experience or contact the program manager/officer.
  • Ensure your budget items are detailed and clearly explained, and that your projected income and expenses are balanced.
  • Applicants are expected to explore other sources of funding. ArtsNL is rarely the sole funder of a project.
  • Tuition fees for educational programs that qualify for student loan support are not eligible for funding.
  • In kind support should not be listed in your project budget. It can be listed on a separate page in your application.

Should I include support materials with my application? What can I include as support materials?
Support materials are intended to strengthen your application. They should be appropriate to your application, and should reflect your ability to complete your proposed project. ArtsNL is not responsible for damage to, or loss of any submitted support material.

ArtsNL can accept support materials in the following formats: digital images (jpegs recommended), photographs, CDs, DVDs, manuscripts, and scores. Links to videos stored online (Vimeo, You Tube, etc.) may be submitted as support material in your application.

ArtsNL CANNOT accept support materials in the following formats: Original artworks, published books, cassette or VHS tapes, documents stored in Dropbox, Google +, etc.

When including support materials please note the following:

  • Images should be of professional quality and show only the individual art work. Never send us your originals. Clearly label images with your name, title of the work, the media, year created, and size of the work. It is recommended you submit 10 – 20 images with a visual arts application.
  • Manuscripts (up to 30 pages) should be included for any writing project; ideally it should be from the project for which you are seeking funding. Other writing samples can be included as well. They should be of your best work and, if possible, reflect the subject matter, genre or writing style of the project for which you are seeking support.
  • Audio support material can include work recorded on CDs and DVDs. These works should be of good sound quality, and offer a good sampling of your music. At least two selections should be included. The title of the works should be listed on the support material.
  • Computer based materials must be viewable on a PC platform. A website address should not be the only support material included.

If you require support material to be returned, you must include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your application OR arrange to pick it up from the ArtsNL office. ArtsNL will hold on to support material for one year. After this period, any unpublished works/works in progress that have not been picked up will be shredded (as per ATIPP guidelines), and any published materials that have not been picked up will be sent to the provincial archives.

What should I keep in mind when completing an application to ArtsNL?
Here are some quick tips to keep in mind that will allow ArtsNL to process and assess your application as efficiently as possible.

  1. Copies of your application: Each program requires a number of copies of your application to be submitted (from three in the PPGP, up to seven in most other programs). Ensure you submit the correct number of copies of a complete application including support materials. Each complete application can be enclosed in a cover or held together with paper clips or bull clips. Please do not staple or bind the application. This makes adding material or changes to your application difficult which can affect the overall presentation of your application to assessors.
  2. Signatures on the application form: All individuals listed as applicants on the application form must also sign and date the application.  Groups and organizations may have a representative (an artistic director, general manager, board member or group member) sign and date the application form. For ArtsSmarts, the teacher applying for the project and the school principal must sign and date the application form.
  3. Financial Statements: All groups and organizations applying for funding from ArtsNL must submit one copy of the annual financial statement for its last completed fiscal year. For all but the Sustaining Program for Professional Arts Organizations (SPPAO), this document may be created internally by the applying group or organization, and must list income, expenses, a deficit /surplus for the last completed year, and any accumulated surpluses or deficits for the group or organization.  Financial statements are reviewed by ArtsNL staff only. Organizations and groups are expected to use their own funds to support their arts activities. Significant accumulated surpluses or deficits (25% or more of your annual budget) will be questioned by ArtsNL staff, and will require a written explanation.
  4. Submitting Applications: Complete applications with the required number of copies must be dropped off at the ArtsNL office in St. John’s by 4:30 p.m. on the application deadline, or mailed with a postmark on or before the application deadline. Applications must be signed and dated when submitted and must include all required parts of the application (completed and signed application form, project description, project budget, resumes/bios of key participants, a financial statement for groups and organization, etc) as noted on the application for the specific program..
  5. Submitting Support Materials: All support materials must be submitted by the application deadline.
  6. Letters of reference:  Two Letters of Reference are recommended, but not required for first-time applicants.  They should come from someone with expertise in the artistic discipline in which you are working. The person should be familiar with you and your work, and should be briefed about the specific project for which you are seeking support. The reference should offer an informed artistic assessment of your project, and your ability to complete it. Letters can be submitted with an application, or sent/ emailed directly to ArtsNL by the reference.  Letters from MHAs and MPs will not be accepted as letters of reference. Letters of reference must be submitted by the application deadline.
  7. Project start dates: Ensure your project starts after the date projects must start listed on the information sheet for the program you are applying to. Projects must happen within one year of being funded. ArtsSmarts and School Touring Program projects must happen within the school year in which they are funded.
  8. Project end dates: Project end dates are important because they establish when a final report on your project is due. ArtsNL should be informed in writing if you must change the start or end date for your project.
  9. Fees and Living Expenses: Only individual applicants to the PPGP can apply for living expenses, but an individual applicant cannot request both living expenses and a fee for service in the same application. Either is acceptable, but not both.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF ARtsNL SUPPORT

How am I required to acknowledge ArtsNL funding support?
You are receiving public /private funds in the form of a grant from ArtsNL for specific professional creative and artistic purposes as outlined in your application. As a condition of the Grant Acceptance Contract, you must acknowledge ArtsNL's support in all promotional material associated with the project outlined in your grant application. This recognition must be equal to that given to corporate funders, or other sponsors/donors, for similar support.

ArtsNL must be acknowledged as a ‘funder’ (as opposed to being included in a collection of corporate sponsors/donors). This is important as ArtsNL grants are exclusively financial, and our processes include peer assessment to ensure the highest artistic goals are met within projects funded.

The official brand for ArtsNL must be used, adhering to the new brand standards guide (available in the ‘Logo’ section). The ArtsNL brand consists of both the graphic portion and the text (i.e. “Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council”) and may not be manipulated in any way.

Grant recipients must also include the following acknowledgment message in their print and promotional materials (brochures, programs, websites, books, CDs, etc.) or when verbally thanking funders at public events or performances.

We acknowledge the support of ArtsNL, which last year invested $2.5 million to foster and promote the creation and enjoyment of the arts for the benefit of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.

NOTE: Failure to acknowledge the support of ArtsNL can result in a request to return funds awarded, and/or affect your eligibility for future funding.

How does ArtsNL expect successful applicants to acknowledge ArtsNL support?
How you specifically acknowledge support from the ArtsNL depends on the discipline you work in, and the nature of your group or organization. Some guiding examples are:

  • Dance: Media releases and interviews, posters advertising shows, performance programs at shows or festivals, list of funders at the end of a dance film, on packaging for the DVD of a dance film, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the performance (print or digital).

  • Film: Media releases and interviews, posters for the film, list of funders at the end of a film in credits, on your website, in your social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the film (print or digital), and on packaging for a DVD. ArtsNL funding for script writing must be acknowledged in the finished film.
  • Multidiscipline: Media releases and interviews, posters advertising a performance, performance programs at shows or festivals, in any book, publication, or CD/DVD created as a result of the grant, at all gallery or public presentations of the work created, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the work (print or digital).
  • Music: Media releases and interviews, posters and publicity for a concert or CD release event, performance programs at shows or festivals, on CD/DVD packaging, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the album (print or digital). ArtsNL support for song-writing or composition must be acknowledged in publicity and media, as described above, when the created work is presented.
  • Theatre: Media releases and interviews, posters advertising performances, performance programs at shows and festivals, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the script and/or production (print or digital). ArtsNL support for script writing and/or development must be acknowledged in publicity and media, as described above, when the created work is presented.
  • Visual Art: Media releases and interviews, posters advertising an exhibition, at all gallery or public presentations of the work, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the work (print or digital). ArtsNL support for the creation of work must be acknowledged in publicity and media, as described above, when the created work is exhibited.
  • Writing: Media releases and interviews, within the finished publication (either on the back cover or on the copyright page), posters advertising a book launch, performance programs for readings at festivals, on your website, in social media posts on all platforms, on any advertising for the title (print or digital). ArtsNL support for the creation of a novel, poetry series, set of short stories, etc., must be acknowledged in the book when the created work is published.

FINAL REPORTS

When are final reports on projects funded due?
A final report on all projects funded by ArtsNL is typically required within three months of the project end date listed on the application form.  However, if an applicant already funded by ArtsNL seeks new funding from ArtsNL, the final report requirements listed below apply.

Can I apply for ArtsNL funding if I owe a final report on a past grant?
When applying for new funding from ArtsNL, an applicant is permitted to have one final report owing across all ArtsNL programs. In this instance, a final report is considered owing on any past project funded by ArtsNL that is past the project end date listed on the application, or extended on approval of ArtsNL staff before the current application deadline. Applicants owing more than one final report across all ArtsNL programs will not be permitted to apply for further funding from the ArtsNL.

What should I include in a final report?
Your final report must include the following:

A Narrative Report that details/includes:  

  1. The overall concept, planning, and execution of your project. Include details, such as, who was involved, when it happened, and where it took place. Include comments on the reaction you have been getting to your project and/or the dissemination it has or will be given.
  2. Any challenges you encountered completing the project, how they were resolved, and any changes from your original proposal (e.g. dates, funding sources, personnel, program, etc.) If applicable, you may want to discuss the impact of a reduced grant on your project.

Where can I get a final report form?
Final report forms are available from ArtsNL office or right here.

Please note, there is a separate final report form for ArtsSmarts projects only.
