OAC Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators

Workman Arts

Workman Arts is now a recommender for the Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators, a program that provides funding to assist theatre creators to develop new work. The minimum grant awarded is $1,000 and the maximum is $5,000. The program is not intended to accommodate some kinds of activities that the Theatre Projects program does, including workshops leading towards production, rehearsal, or production.

Our priorities in awarding the funding we have been allocated are projects by creator(s) with lived experience of mental health/addiction and/or content/subject matter that explores mental health/addiction in a sophisticated and artistically grounded way. Projects may be multidisciplinary.

This program is open to applications from both Workman Arts members and non-member artists, as per the guidelines of the program. Our deadline for 2018 is December 14.

All applications for Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators must be submitted through the OAC’s online granting portal, Nova, and not directly to Workman Arts. When filling out your application on Nova, you will be required to submit a CV and a script sample.
