Seeds of Stories

Oct 14, 2022 Update: We have currently closed Seeds of Stories applications due to all funding being allocated. We will re-open for applications should new funding be secured.


During the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years, the Seeds of Stories (SOS) Bursary program assisted high-needs Alberta schools with their literacy programming through bursaries of up to $500 towards a virtual visit from a YABS literary artist. Edmonton and area bursaries were thanks to support from the Edmonton Arts Council’s Connections and Exchanges Initiative grant and the Edmonton Community Foundation. Schools in other Alberta communities were also eligible for $500 bursaries due to the reallocation of the Taleblazers travel budget.

This initiative was made possible for Edmonton and area schools with funding assistance from the Edmonton Community Foundation and from the Edmonton Arts Council’s Connections and Exchanges Initiatives Grant.

The program supports artistic experiments, organizational development, strategic planning and other activities that connect to the Aims, Ambitions, and Actions outlined in Connections & Exchanges: A 10-Year Plan to Transform Arts and Heritage in Edmonton.
