Puppetmongers is accredited as a Recommending Company for the
Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators 2018-2019
Which means that we have a total of $5000 to divide between all worthy projects
( All applications are now on-line and the deadline is 1:00 p.m. October 15th, 2018)
Puppetmongers is seeking applications from artists currently involved in the development of puppetry projects. Our priorities and areas of interest are:
- The development of theatrical work with puppetry
- The integration of puppetry into theatre productions
- The creation of new forms of puppetry and new theatrical uses of puppetry
- The nurturing of new generation and culturally diverse artists
Projects may be at any stage of development prior to production or workshop production. These small grants are particularly suited to helping artists with the earliest phases of creation, the development of ideas, the building of a creative team etc.
We have a total of $5,000 to assign between all successful applications, thus the grants we can recommend range from a minimum of $1,000 to the unlikely maximum of $5,000. They have tended to be on the lower end, spread over a few projects. We are curious and excited to see what the artistic community has percolating, and extremely grateful to the Ontario Arts Council for their increased support of puppetry.
Deadline for applications is 1 p.m. October 15th 2018. We strongly recommend that you submit your application at least by the day before this deadline, to avoid technical glitches.
We request submissions include a budget and a short bio for all participants in their support material.
All applicants must meet the criteria requirements of the Ontario Arts Council. For more information about the Theatre Creators’ Reserve program, to access the full guidelines and the application form, please click here for the OAC website
