GRANT APPLICATION GUIDELINES – 2022/23
The Ottawa Fringe Festival is once again serving as a third-party recommender
for the Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program.
Applications will open September 2022, with a deadline of December 19, 2022, 1:00 pm EST.
Applications will be accepted through NOVA only.
The Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program supports theatre creators in creating new work. Decisions are made by organizations on behalf of OAC, operating as third-party recommenders.
Individuals and collectives are eligible, HOWEVER organizations are ineligible.
Wondering about your eligibility? Contact us before submitting your application.
The program will fund any type of performance creation by eligible applicants.
The following are not eligible for funding:
The minimum amount you can request is $1,000. The maximum is $3,000. We may, however, recommend less than you request (though not less than $1,000).
You can apply to up to five organizations in the same year (for the same project or for different projects) and may also receive more than one RGTC grant in any one year.
We are looking to fund under-represented, emerging, and new generation artists, living and creating in Ottawa. We will only fund artists who live in Ottawa.
Our definition of “emerging” has broadened slightly, to include artists who may be quite experienced but could be writing/creating for the first time (e.g. an actor writing their first play).
Grant recommendations will be made by Alain Richer, Executive Director.
Applications will be assessed based on artistic merit and interest, quality of the artistic process, and impact on Ottawa artists. Grant amounts will be determined based on the scope and scale of the proposed project, as well as the feasibility of the proposed work plan.
Basically: get us excited about your project, articulate a thoughtful process, and let us know how the project will benefit Ottawa artists.
Your application includes:
Even more application guidelines and information about the RGTC program can be found on the OAC website.
