The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, Sustainability (I.D.E.A.S.) grant, previously known as Equity and Diversity in the Arts (EDA) grant, seeks to fund artistic and/or research projects that focus on implementing transformative changes. The I.D.E.A.S. grant is an exciting initiative based on a long-standing endowment partnership between the Federal Government and the University of Toronto. It is an integral part of ACM; faculty are encouraged to mentor or co-apply with students. Through various kinds of support, the I.D.E.A.S. grant aims to cultivate and support a decolonial politics within a long-term horizon of accountability, solidarity, cooperation and non-competition. The I.D.E.A.S. grant funds activities in key areas of creative practice and research including anti-racist, decolonial, and/or Indigenous allyship; queer, trans, and gender nonconforming relations; and accessible/disability inclusion-focused outcomes.
