The Indigenous Artist Award is a $20,000 cash prize, with professional artist mentor/Elder or mentee/protégée designated by the Award Recipient receiving $5,000, and finalists receiving $2,000. In addition to the prize money, the 2022 recipient will receive a complimentary week long stay at Valleyview Artist Retreat. The award recognizes an Indigenous professional artist or artist collective working in traditional or contemporary practices and who have contributed significantly to arts and culture in Toronto and have demonstrated an ongoing association with Toronto.
