Yosef Wosk Publication Grants support new, original publications on aspects of Vancouver’s heritage places, their conservation and related topics. The program aims to support projects in reaching completion by assisting with a variety of professional services and fees such as editing, graphic design, technical drawing, reproduction and permission fees. A variety of media can be eligible for support including printed books, digital publications and film. The grant is open to individuals and non-profits/registered charities and can be used to support a defined phase of a larger project. Up to $10,000 total is available annually to disburse. (Please note that to date, multiple recipients have been chosen per year, and therefore the total amount each has received has been less than $10,000. Due to the limited amount available, we recommend your project consider multiple funders for completion.)
Eligible projects will have a tangible long-lasting product and aim to increase public awareness, knowledge and appreciation of heritage places or heritage conservation in Vancouver. The finished project should have a permanent format, be publicly accessible and have a plan for distribution.
Publications can relate to cultural landscapes or intangible cultural heritage as well as buildings, structures, districts and other places that have heritage value. Projects can include, but are not limited to: print and online books or chapbooks, technical guides, videos or documentary film, websites or digital apps, and audio publications. Please consider if your project offers a diversity of perspectives and connects to a variety of audiences.
