Call for Submissions: Theatre Creator’s Reserve Program, Theatre Gargantua

Theatre Gargantua is a proud recommender for the OAC’s Theatre Creator’s Reserve Program. This program provides funding for individuals or informal collectives based in Ontario to ‘buy time’ to develop a project.

Theatre Gargantua supports the development of original Canadian work and of Ontario’s artists. Priority will be given to projects which integrate multiple art forms in a theatrical context, and/or which are adventurous in integrating artists working in new or emerging disciplines and projects that push the boundaries of what theatre can be.


Individuals and Collectives may apply for $1,000 – $5,000.
