WinWin 50/50 for GASP! on the Isle of the Arts


A grant program for Gabriola, Mudge & DeCourcy Artists.

Join us in celebrating artists with a 50/50 draw to raise money for the GASP! fund. GASP! is the Gabriola Artist Support Program. Last year we had a micro version of GASP! and awarded 26 micro grants to local artists. This year we are returning to the original program where we award grants of up to $1000 for the following:

  1. Individual Artists—Professional Development
  2. Individual Artists—Project
  3. Emerging Artists—Scholarships & Learning Opportunities

This fund was inspired by GAC’s Mission: to engage, enhance, and inspire the community’s cultural vitality through collaboration, leadership, and service. The specific priorities are:

  • to enable Gabriola artists of all ages and at all levels to access professional development and other training opportunities.
  • to support Gabriola artists in the development of specific arts projects.
  • to ensure public access to and engagement with arts and culture on Gabriola Island.
  • to increase public awareness of and engagement with the arts

GAC will match the funds raised through the WinWin 50/50 Raffle up to $3000. Applications for GASP! will open Monday, May 26th and close  Monday, July 5th. Successful candidates will be announced Friday, August 13th.
