The New Work Grant supports emerging individual artists and artist collectives of all artistic disciplines in their creation of new work. “New Work” is defined as work that has not been produced or presented to an audience before. New Work Grants offer project-based financial support of $3,000.

All QAF applicants are required to attend a live info session or watch a recorded info session. Any one member of an artist collective or collaboration may attend or watch an info session on behalf of their group. Attend or view an info session here.
