Celebration of Cultural Life Awards
The Celebration of Cultural Life Awards recognize excellence in three of Toronto’s senior arts practitioners. Each award, which embraces the spirit of Toronto Arts Council founding president William Kilbourn, celebrates an individual performer, teacher, administrator and/or creator in any arts discipline, including architecture and design, whose work is a celebration of life through the arts. The topmost recipient will receive a $10,000 cash prize and two finalists will each receive a $2,000 cash prize. The Celebration of Cultural Life Awards will be presented every two years. Established in 2017, these awards are generously sponsored by Arthur Dalfen. The Celebration of Cultural Life Awards are part of our Signature Awards, presented at the Mayor's Arts Lunch.
