Canada Council for the Arts new Initiative: Digital Originals

Do you want to share your creation online?

The Canada Council for the Arts and CBC/Radio-Canada are teaming up once again, this time to launch Digital Originals, a new fast forward initiative to help artists, arts groups and organizations pivot their work for online sharing.

Countless artistic activities have been cancelled or delayed due to COVID-19, but countless creations have also reached an impressive online audience.

The Digital Originals initiative supports and amplifies this new, strong and innovative online relationship between audiences and artists from Canada.

What is Digital Originals?

Artists, groups or organizations can either adapt their existing work or create a new work for digital dissemination to the Canadian public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Digital Originals offers a $5,000 micro innovation grant from the Canada Council.

Funded projects will be housed on a dedicated CBC/Radio-Canada website. In addition, CBC/Radio-Canada will feature selected projects for showcase on at least one of its digital CBC/Radio-Canada platforms.

Selected projects for the curated CBC-Radio/Canada showcase will receive a supplemental amount of $1000.
