The mission of the Arts and Culture Table is to support, promote, and celebrate arts and culture in NDG. We do this by supporting our members’ projects and initiatives through collaboration, facilitation, training, grant writing, letters of support, and coordination of arts and culture projects throughout the community. 

Since its creation in 2015, the Table has successfully mobilized dozens of organizations, groups, and active residents, obtained funding for projects within the community, and organized its own arts and culture projects in NDG.

Thanks to a generous donation from Porchfest in 2023, the Arts & Culture Table is launching a micro-grant program for resident-led arts & culture projects in NDG. We are offering ten small grants of up to $350 to help residents cover costs related to their projects. There is no deadline for this program and applications will be open until all grants have been awarded. Grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis and reviewed by a sub-committee of Arts & Culture Table members according to eligibility. The submission form will open at noon on June 17th, 2024 and will be posted here.

Eligibility requirements:

  • You are an NDG resident

  • You are an individual or small community group creating a project related to arts & culture (registered non-profits are not eligible for this funding)

  • Your project will be free for the community to attend/participate in

  • Your project benefits the NDG community

  • Your project must take place in the 12 months following the reception of the grant

  • You agree to fill out a short report on Google Forms once the project is completed (how many people participated, if the grant was helpful for the success of your project, if you felt the project was successful, and a couple of photos)

  • Only one application per individual or group

Some examples of eligible projects are art workshops, public dance/music/theatre/comedy etc. performances, art exhibitions, murals, or books/zines featuring community members. Any public projects related to arts and culture are eligible! If you are unsure whether or not your project is eligible, feel free to reach out to michellepawlowsky@ndg.ca.

Once the form is open, we will be asking for:

  • Full name, address, email, phone number

  • Project proposal: Please include a description of your project, where and when the project will take place, and how the project benefits the NDG community (max 300 words).

  • Budget: Please include how much money you are applying for (up to $350) and a brief description of how you plan to spend the money. Eligible costs include materials, time, equipment rentals, promotional/printing costs, etc.

  • How many people will benefit from your project (estimate)

The application form will be posted at noon on June 17th, 2024.

In the summer of 2015, the Council reached out to many of the stakeholders in the artistic and cultural domains, and together they created the Arts and Culture Table. The creation of the Table was an inclusive process, stemming from the tremendous volume of actions that were happening in the neighborhood The Table is made up of both organisations and residents. Uniquely, the Table has a particularly large number of residents and informal groups on the Table, reflecting the wide range of artistically-minded people in NDG. The Table has a simple mandate: to promote the arts and celebrate the cultures of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. To date the Council has supported the members of the table through collaboration, facilitation, training, brainstorming, as well as grant writing and providing letters of support.
