Introducing The New Matchmaker Micro-Grant

The Mississauga Arts Council (MAC) is inviting local artists to apply for our 2020 COVID-19 Response Intiative: The Matchmaker Micro-Grant.

The Matchmaker Micro-Grant is designed to help artists recover in part, from the devastating financial impact of the Pandemic. With money saved from operations and in particular, receipt of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, MAC is able to offer up to $2,000 in matching funds for money raised by sponsorship, investment and in-kind contributions by the artists themselves. 

The goal of the Matchmaker Micro-Grant is to prompt an increase in the number of funds the artists have to work with, by providing a dollar for dollar matching grant of up to $2,000.

Grants are available to individual artists and unregistered groups/collectives living in or based in Mississauga.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  1. A project with an impact on an Artist’s career and the Public 
  2. Matching funds from a third party; sponsor, investor, artist  
  3. Entrepreneurial Collaboration   
  4. Digital Marketing and Innovation
