In celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary, and the 20th year of the Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund (EATF) Award, the Eldon and Anne Foote Fund has made a one-time contribution to increase the 2017 EATF pool to $150,000. The addition of the Foote investment, through Edmonton Community Foundation, will allow the EAC to award $15,000 to ten exceptional, local artists.
The EATF Award is open to any artist who is a resident of the greater Edmonton region (which includes the City of Edmonton and the Counties of Sturgeon, Parkland, Leduc and Strathcona); 18 years or older; and a Candiana citizen or Permanent Resident.
