About Partners in Art

Partners in Art (PIA) is a volunteer-led charitable organization which funds contemporary art projects across Canada and around the world. Since 2002 the Toronto-based PIA has raised over $4.3 million and supported 63 projects. PIA collaborates with Canadian curators, arts organizations and museums to fund projects featuring contemporary artists with challenging works and thoughtful perspectives.

Proposals for funding are welcomed and reviewed by a project development committee. We look for projects that reflect curatorial excellence, offer a strong educational component and move the contemporary visual arts forward.  A request for funding form – part one – can be downloaded here Please send your completed part one form to projectdevelopment@partnersinart.ca.
