Special programs

AFA funding can also be used to develop innovative partnerships and to support one-time opportunities.

As a responsive arts funding organization, we will support special programs beyond grant funding opportunities that help develop different facets of Alberta's arts community.

Alberta Future Leaders

The Alberta’s Future Leaders (AFL) summer program provides art, sports, recreation and leadership opportunities to help strengthen and empower youth who live in First Nation and Métis communities in Alberta.

AFA 25th anniversary

On September 6, 2016, we marked the 25th anniversary of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Act, 1991 which established the AFA as the means for the Government of Alberta to support the arts in Alberta.

To commemorate our anniversary, we initiated programs and funding opportunities designed to engage and celebrate our arts community!

Awards and Scholarships

The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Alberta Culture offer scholarship programs designed to support the development of young Albertans in the film and video, literary, performing and visual arts.
