Program-specific definitions

Multi- and inter-arts activities: practices, initiatives and events that have two or more artistic forms present in equal balance in the creation, production and presentation of work. Artistic forms may remain separate or can be combined to create new, unified forms. Multi and inter-arts activities involve bringing art forms together in ways that makes the activity unique and therefore not eligible for funding in OAC’s discipline-based theatre, dance, music, visual arts, craft or media arts programs.
