OAC Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators 2018-19

Theatre Smith Gilmour is accepting submissions for the Ontario Arts Council’s  Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators Program.  This program was previously known as Theatre Creators’ Reserve.

This program assists  individuals and collectives  to develop new theatre work. This is a third-party recommender program, meaning applications are submitted to Theatre Smith-Gilmour.

For full details, please see OAC Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators page.

Deadline:  November 2nd, 2018

Grant Amount: minimum $1,000, maximum $5,000

Company Interest and Priorities:

To assist theatre artists to create new work that:

  • reflects our cultural diversity
  • explores collaborative creation
  • investigates the human condition with a unique theatricality

Each application will be reviewed individually based on its own merits and needs by Dean Gilmour and Michele Smith, Co-Artistic Directors of Theatre Smith-Gilmour. Recommendations and grant amounts will be determined based on the scope and scale of the proposed project, the artist’s history of creation and the feasibility of the artist’s work plan.

Application Instructions:

Starting this  year, applications are now submitted to recommenders through Nova, the OAC’s online grant application system.  All requirements for our Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators are outlined in Nova.
