The Alberta Foundation for the Arts is a public agency and a provincial corporation of the Government of Alberta with a mandate to support and contribute to the development of the arts in Alberta. We provide grant funding to artists and art organizations to encourage the growth and development of the arts sector. We also promote the arts and manage an extensive provincial art collection featuring work from artists all over the province.
The AFA reports to Alberta’s Minister of Arts, Culture and Status of Women and is guided by the objectives found in the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Act, 1991.
The AFA respectfully acknowledges that it supports artistic activity on Treaty 6, 7 and 8 territories: traditional lands of First Nations and Métis peoples.
