Project Accelerator Grant: Winter Edition
Winter. Frigid, beautiful, dark, and long, it's a part of who we are as Edmontonians. Some of us keep tally marks on our walls to keep track of how many winters we've survived. Others chase the snow up mountains as spring forces the white to retreat upward. We all enjoy/endure winter in unique ways, inventing our own fun as we go along.
In January we received 53 applications from people who wanted to make something beautiful, strange, or unforgettable in Edmonton this winter season. Our volunteer jury — comprised of three members of the public and one Make Something Edmonton activation board member — awarded micro-grants to the 12 projects listed below.
Keep an eye on our blog to follow these projects as they come to life over the next two months!
We thank all the applicants for embodying Edmonton's maker spirit, and we thank our jury for their deliberations.
