Welcome to the Neighbourhood Arts Network Learning Room and the 'Money' Section. We aim to link you directly to funding opportunities that might benefit you and your work. That is not to say that what you find here are the only opportunities out there, but rather, this is a good place to start.

See our 'How to' section for valuable tips on Grant Writing, Sponsorship development and other fundraising techniques.

We’ve designed this space to direct you to specific professional development opportunities, online learning, lesson plans, funding initiatives, toolkits, reports and information that is relevant to artists and organizations in the community engaged arts sector. If there is anything you would like to see added to this section, do not hesitate to contact us today!
