Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators
2020 RGTC applications are now closed.
Toronto Fringe is a recommender organization with the Ontario Arts Council. Recommenders are organizations authorized by OAC to receive applications, review them and make grant recommendations. OAC allocates a budget to each of the participating recommenders. RGTC grants fund individuals or ad hoc collectives of artists for the development of new theatrical work. You can request between $1,000 and $5,000 for your project.
Priorities for Fringe:
Toronto Fringe will consider projects that meet the following criteria:
- Unique, innovative, and unexpected methods of storytelling.
- Artists/artist collaborations using any range of creative processes (script writing or otherwise) in the development of new, previously unproduced theatre.
