Multi- and inter-arts activities: are 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 make the activity unique and therefore not eligible for funding in OAC's discipline-based programs in Theatre, Dance, Music, Literature, Visual Arts or Media Arts.
