Lobby Chats:
I got the grant! What now?”

Virtual Chat on Zoom; ASL interpretation provided

More artists and collectives than ever have been applying for and receiving grants to create work during the pandemic. As a result, many of us have to learn what it means to produce without the support of a larger organization – from project management to contracts to protecting our personal finances and much more. Becoming a DIY producer comes with a lot of excitement and validation but also financial stress and uncertainty. This panel discussion will be helpful for anyone new to producing and managing project grants as well as those who have been doing it for a while but still feel like they have questions.

Panelists: 

  • Rachel Krehm (Founder & General Director of indie opera company Opera 5, singer)
  • Alyssa Martin (Founder & Artistic Director of Rock Bottom Movement, choreographer)
  • Kristina Lemieux (Lead Producer at Generator)
  • Saman Shahi (Executive Director of ICOT, composer, pianist)

Moderator: 

  • Mimi Mok (Business and Development Director, The Theatre Centre, TAPA Board Member)

This chat is presented by The AFC in partnership with the Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts and Generator.
