We launched the Digital Originals initiative this spring at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada.

You might remember that this initiative offered $5,000 micro innovation grants for artists, groups, and organizations to adapt existing work or create new work to share with the public. Our partner CBC/Radio-Canada will feature select projects in a digital showcase. We also partnered with the RBC Foundation to ensure $150,000 of Digital Originals funding went to new and early career artists. In partnering, we aligned shared goals and complemented resources.
