Project Description
Project Partners

If completion or delivery of your project will be done in collaboration with partners, please provide information about your partners, and for each partner indicate whether they have, as yet, committed to their role (e.g. galleries in which work will be displayed, school boards through which programs will be delivered). In instances where partners have formally committed to participate, please attach a copy of their letter of support.

In the case of installation of a work of art or sculpture please specify the exact location of the installation and indicate whether you have permission from the owner of that property to install or mount, perform or present the work there.

Any other project support or partners worth mentioning (can be financial or in-kind)

Financial Matters
*If project involves a collaboration, only 1 (one) cheque will be issued for the project.
Project Budget / Supporting Materials

Please attach your proposed project budget. Show both projected revenues and expenses as follows:

Revenue: list all anticipated sources of revenue including all grants and donations and whether any sources have been confirmed. You may also include in-kind contributions, but these should be substantiated by supplying names and contact information of each contributor.

Expenses: list all projected expenses and details of those costs for the project you propose to include through the Arts, Culture & Heritage Fund grant.

Note: The City, at its expense, reserves the right to audit any submitted financial statements or Project approved for City grants, and upon reasonable request to do so, the grant recipient shall make available at its premises all related books and records to the City of Windsor or its agents.

Supporting Materials: As per the ACHF program guidelines, any supporting materials submitted will not be returned to the applicant. Supporting materials are not required; however, they can enhance your application and provide unique insight to the jury. Supporting materials can include manuscripts, link to online portfolios, audio/videotapes, brochures, posters, news stories, articles/clippings, audience testimonials, photographs, etc. Please do not submit original works of art as the City does not have the facilities for their proper care and storage, nor do they want the responsibility of such items. Although the Cultural Affairs staff and jurors will take care with supporting materials, they and the City of Windsor are not responsible for loss or damage.
