Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program moves online

September 10, 2018


Attention, all artists applying for Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators through the Ontario Arts Council (OAC)!

 

Applications for this third-party recommender program are now submitted using Nova, OAC’s online application system. Two other third-party recommender programs – Exhibition Assistance and Indigenous Visual Artists’ Materials – moved online earlier this summer.

 

About Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators

This program provides grants of $1,000 to $5,000 to Ontario-based theatre creators to assist them in developing new work.

Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators is a third-party recommender program. This means that when you’re applying, you select one of the theatre organizations OAC has designated as a “recommender organization” to assess your application. Recommender organizations then submit their grant selections to OAC.

View a full list of recommender organizations for this program, including the types of applications each organization prioritizes.

 

What's new?

1. This application process is now done entirely online within Nova, rather than on paper

  • If you would like to apply for an OAC grant, and you have never applied before, you will need to start by creating and activating a user profile in Nova. For full instructions on this, see the Nova User Guide.
     
  • If you have applied to OAC before, but you have never used Nova, OAC has created a basic user profile for you, using the email address from your last OAC application. If this applies to you, please follow these instructions:
    • Go to the Nova login page.
    • Click on the link “Request Password Reset”.
    • Enter the email address that you provided in your last application.
    • Follow the instructions to create a new password and activate your user profile. For full instructions on this, see the Nova User Guide.
       
  • If you have applied to OAC before using Nova, simply go to the Funding Opportunities section of your dashboard to find the program.

2. Applicants may now apply to a maximum of 10 recommender organizations

  • Recommender organizations participate in this program on a volunteer basis, and do not receive any compensation for this administrative work. So, to help manage their workload, applicants can now submit applications to a maximum of 10 theatre organizations per year.
