RGD Members are invited to request funding for local events

Looking to organize an event or program for designers in your community? RGD's Programs Committee wants you to request.


A new Funding Request Form allows Members to tell us about the events you'd like to organize and request funding and operational assistance.


"As Chair of the newly-formed Programs Committee, I am thrilled to be working with a diverse group of designers and educators from across the country. Our mandate is simple. We are here to provide insight and oversight for relevant programs and events as they are requested by the RGD community at large, and to help spark ideas and encourage grassroots Member activity and culture. In short, we are here to listen to your ideas and to do what we can to help you make them happen–so bring them on!" Jesse Gibb RGD, Art Director, Carve Design


RGD Members (Certified RGDs, Provisional RGDs and Affiliate Members) residing in Canada can submit a funding request. Answer questions about your event objectives, promotion strategies and how it will contribute to the community and the Programs Committee will evaluate the request and determine if it meets our criteria for funding.


Initiatives that receive funding will be asked to submit a report after the event to be published to the RGD website under Community News. To date, the Committee has helped fund two initiatives: a typography workshop and lecture in Halifax and a conference in Sudbury. A report on the Halifax events is published on the RGD site.


*The form should be submitted 30 days prior to the proposed event.
