Theatre Creators' Reserve Program

Theatre Creators’ Reserve Program 2018-19  Ontario Arts Council


The Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators program assists theatre creators to develop new work. The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) designates recommender organizations throughout the province. Each recommender receives a budget allocation and is authorized to receive Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators applications. Recommenders assess the applications and submit their grant recommendations to OAC. OAC reviews submitted recommendations, approves them, and notifies the applicants.

The Grand Theatre’s priority is to foster writers who can support our commitment to premiering our stories on our stages. We are World Curious and London Proud and we are seeking plays that share that spirit and will resonate with our audience. In our desire to encourage and reflect the world and our community, diversity will also be a consideration in the assessment of these applications.

Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators complete program guidelines and applications are available on the OAC website:

All applicants must create a profile in Nova, and apply through this portal.


Applications must be received in Nova by December 7, 2018.
