StART Partnership Program is designed to encourage active transportation (walking and cycling), make our streets more inviting and safe, showcase local artists, mentor emerging talent, reduce overall infrastructure maintenance costs and create opportunities for positive engagement among residents, business owners and operators, artists and arts organizations.

StART provides up to $60,000 in funding for partnership projects that support program objectives. StART strives to support a diverse range of artists and organizations, increase mentorship opportunities through street art installations, develop the talents of local emerging artists and expand the variety and scope of projects supported every year.

All proposed projects and their related activities must be located within the City of Toronto with maximum street visibility and neighbourhood impact. Written authorization from the property owner is required at the time of application.

Projects must demonstrate a strong community engagement component. StART requires applicants to host public consultations or events to inform the community about their projects and obtain feedback. Mentorship or training opportunities for youth or emerging artists are encouraged.

Submissions are evaluated by a jury using a consistent set of assessment criteria.

Application Deadline: February 18, 2020, 11:59pm (eastern)
Please note a late or incomplete application will not be accepted.
