Exhibition Assistance

WWG is a Zone 5 recommender for the Ontario Arts Council’s Exhibition Assistance program. In addition to the OAC program priorities and criteria, the Gallery prioritizes applications from artists at a significant point in their practice, helping them to disseminate their work beyond their locality and increasing the public’s capacity to view contemporary art across Ontario.

The Gallery accepts applications on an ongoing basis, but applications received prior to the following deadlines will be reviewed before the end of each respective month:

  • July 5, 2019
  • October 1, 2019
  • January 15, 2020

For Exhibition Assistance program guidelines and application forms, please visit the OAC webpage.
