The Hal Jackman Foundation encourages and supports artistic creativity by providing grants for a wide range of cultural projects in the fields of visual art, music, opera, dance and theatre. The Foundation is also interested in projects that are interdisciplinary or collaborative in format.
While seeking to promote the creation and presentation of contemporary works, the Foundation also issues grants to organizations engaged in the re-envisioning of traditional or classical repertoire. Priority is given to projects that demonstrate artistic excellence, administrative viability, and community engagement.
The Foundation also supports efforts to advance learning in the arts, to broaden audience development, and to make the arts an active part of people’s everyday lives.
