Blyth Festival is pleased to announce that it has again been invited to participate in the Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program.
Designed to provide funding directly to Ontario playwrights and playmakers, the Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators is a third-party recommender program, administered by the Ontario Arts Council. Through this program, a select number of Ontario’s professional theatres are given the opportunity to recommend writing or creation grants to professional theatre artists who apply. The minimum grant recommendation is $1000 and the maximum is $5000.
Blyth Festival is interested in narratives that embrace the complexity, enormity and diversity of rural life. Blyth is especially interested in work that interrogates questions of Canadian identity. Decisions will be made based on artistic interest and connection to Blyth’s mandate and mission.
If you have any questions, please contact Severn Thompson at the Blyth Festival: firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE: All applications must now be submitted via the OAC’s NOVA platform. Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program guidelines and applications are available on the OAC website.
The 2023/24 application submission deadline is January 12, 2024 at 1:00pm.
