Building Audiences and Markets

Close
It is OAC’s vision that Ontario artists and arts organizations are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for their work. The OAC supports a number of audience and market development projects and initiatives including outreach, touring, residencies, collaborations and travel.  
 
OAC’s key objectives in Building Audiences and Markets are to:  
  • Promote Ontario’s identity through the arts.
  • Increase opportunities for Ontario artists, organizations and arts presenters to reach and build new audiences and communities locally and across the province.
  • Create opportunities for Ontario artists, organizations and arts presenters to showcase their work at the national and international level.
  • Create new and meaningful connections between artists and audiences.
  • Support collaborations that build outreach and audience development capacity.
