The Provost’s Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts is responsible for annually seeking and adjudicating project proposals from members of the Queen's and Kingston communities for the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund. The purpose of the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund is to provide grants for the stimulation of the arts at Queen's University. In accordance with the wishes of the benefactor, Agnes Etherington, who was instrumental in the establishment of the Department of Art, the Department of Music (now Dan School of Drama and Music) and the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the fund is specifically intended to support public performances and exhibitions for the benefit of the Queen's and broader Kingston communities.
Successful applicants will make all arrangements for the projects and be responsible for the reception of visitors while on campus. After the completion of the projects, the applicants will report to the Provost's Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts on the expenditure of the allotted funds and on the activities of the projects. Please note that any event that will occur in person, on campus will need to adhere to the Campus Operations Guidelines.
