artsvest Regional is a smaller, more focused program, available in select regions where there is a local funding partner. Offered in addition to the national artsvest program, this regional program aims to grow the capacity of participating organizations in the area of sponsorships, with in-depth training, expert mentors, and a matching funds incentive. Program capacity is limited, and participants are selected by a review committee, with priority given to remote, rural, systemically under-resourced, and equity-seeking communities. artsvest Regional is currently offered in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Toronto. Learn more about the program and our regions below.
In addition to having access to all national artsvest programming, organizations participating in artsvest Regional will also have a pre-determined amount of matching funds that they can receive for new sponsorships secured during the program (est. $2500 - $5000). Participants will learn or enhance their skills in forging successful, long-term partnerships with the private sector, and artsvest Regional will provide matching incentive funds for new sponsorships secured in an effort to increase business support for the arts.
The program includes webinars and workshops, peer-to-peer networking opportunities and individualized mentorship sessions. artsvest Regional operates through partnerships with local funders. Program capacity is determined by the scope of each partnership agreement.
