New Workshop Sessions on Proposal Writing, Taxes, Playwriting, and Grant Writing

We’re pleased to announce five new Theatre Ontario workshops—including more Grant Writing Information Sessions for Playwrights and Theatre Artists.

Proposal Writing with Wanda Nanibush on Tuesday, February 19—for individuals and organizations applying for funding and sponsorships, learn to write proposals that place the reader in a position where they have an overwhelming desire to fund, promote or collaborate with you.  Bring a current proposal that you are working on for group and one-on-one feedback, and walk out with new skills, ideas, confidence—and possibly a finished proposal.

Taxes For Theatre Artists with Sam Marinucci on Thursday, March 7—What are Revenue Canada’s record-keeping requirements? What expenses can you claim? What deductions are you allowed? How do you report your income? How does HST impact you?  Whether you are employed, self-employed, or registered as a small business this session is an opportunity for you to check your facts, ask questions, and share experiences.

Playwriting: Idea to First Draft with Lindsay Price on Saturday, March 9—Sometimes the hardest step in the playwriting process is the first. Where do I find inspiration? How do I develop an idea? What if my idea fizzles out halfway through? This workshop takes you from the idea stage to confidently writing a first draft.

We also have two more Grant Writing Information Session for Playwrights and Theatre Artists, with Pat Bradley, Theatre Officer of the Ontario Arts Council—These sessions share information, perspective, and tips about project grants, particularly the OAC’s three professional theatre project programs—Theatre Projects, Playwright Residency, and Theatre Creators’ Reserve.  The new Grant Writing Information sessions will be in Thunder Bay on Wednesday, February 27 and in Ottawa on Thursday, March 21.

We’re also still taking registrations for our previously announced workshops—Grant Writing Information Session for Playwrights and Theatre Artists in Burlington on Thursday, January 24; Getting Started For Actors on Wednesday, January 30; and Self-Start: The Basics of Producing on Wednesday, February 6.
