SAF transition

We are no longer running our award program in support of individual artists.

For thirteen years, Sustainable Arts Foundation supported artists and writers with children. We offered unrestricted cash awards to 273 individual artists, and made grants to over 60 artist residencies to make their programs more family friendly. In total, we awarded over two million dollars in funding to support creative parents.

In 2023, in solidarity with the groundswell of efforts toward decolonization, we committed to spend down the foundation’s assets and return the funds to Indigenous communities.
