How Do the Latest Federal Culture Funds Actually Break Down?

On June 26, Canadian Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly announced $125 million in new funding for culture in Canada—including the launch of Creative Export Canada, “a new funding program that will help global creators stand out in the global market,” the PR promised.

After the initial flurry of media attention on the funding, key questions remained: How does that new federal money actually break down? And what are the consequences, if any, for contemporary art and related businesses such as private art galleries and dealers? These factors were difficult to parse in initial releases, which highlighted “music, film, books, video games [and]virtual and augmented reality or design” as possible beneficiaries of the plan, as well as assisting “small and medium-sized businesses” in particular—but not once mentioning contemporary art. canadianart.ca
