OAC Recommender Grant

Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators

Pleiades Theatre is pleased to serve as a recommending theatre for the Ontario Arts Council’s Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators.  The goal of this program is to assist Ontario-based theatre creators to develop new work.  


Our deadline to apply is January 14, 2021, 1pm EST.

Our Priorities

Pleiades Theatre is focused on providing support to artists whose work celebrates cultures from around the world.  We are drawn to new works written in English which explore life in one of Canada’s many cultures, as well as new translations of existing works from the international repertoire that originate in languages other than English.  We are also interested in supporting artists from a diverse range of cultural communities. 

How to Apply

For information on eligibility and how to apply, please visit the OAC website.   All applications must be submitted through NOVA, the Ontario Arts Council’s online application system, and application will be notified by OAC through their NOVA account.  Please do not send paper or PDF applications directly to Pleiades.
