 MAC MicroGrants 

MAC’s dynamic and impactful MicroGrant program provides funding for artist-led projects which have a pronounced and impactful connection to the public and bring recognition and increased awareness to the arts across the city.

These MicroGrants are made possible through sponsor contributions and MAC’s own fundraising efforts. We offer two streams of MicroGrant funding.

MAC’s engaging MicroGrant Program provides funding to new artist-led projects. These MicroGrants target areas of interest or need within the local arts sector, and often encourage collaboration across artistic practices. MicroGrant funding streams are subject to change and are identified by MAC.

MAC’s Matchmaker MicroGrants are designed to help Mississauga artists start or complete a project or to invest in their professional development. Artists can receive matching funds for money raised by sponsorship, investment, and in-kind contributions by the artists themselves.
