CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 2012 OAC THEATRE CREATORS' RESERVE

The Theatre Creators' Reserve program supports theatre creators in creating new work. It assists Ontario-based professional theatre creators, and informal collectives of creators, by funding them to create work.

MT Space is delighted to be a recommender for the Ontario Arts Council's Theatre Creators' Reserve Program 2012/2013.

MT Space invites playwrights and theatre creators from all cultural backgrounds to bring their work forward! We will recommend grants to selected projects.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 30, 2012

For detailed program information, eligibility criteria and application forms, please visit the OAC's website.

Grant amounts will range from a minimum of $1000 to a maximum of $5000.

We create through collaboration at MT Space so we encourage collectives / projects that will be developed by collectives to apply for this grant. Creators who are working on non-script based physical forms are strongly encouraged to apply.

A successful application will include:

  1. Three Completed and Signed Copies of the Application Form
