Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators
We are interested in supporting unique, innovative, and unexpected methods of storytelling. We will consider artists and artist collaborations using any range of creative processes (script writing or otherwise) in the development of new theatre or dance. This year, all applications for Recommender Grants will go through OAC's online grant portal NOVA. The Toronto Fringe's RGTC are due by November 5, 2018.
