There is still time to register for many of our upcoming workshops:
  • Grant Writing Information Session for Playwrights and Theatre Artists on March 21 at 6pm in Ottawa – Pat Bradley, Theatre Officer of the Ontario Arts Council, will 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
  • So You Need Money For Your Project: Crowdfunding for Artists and Arts Organizations on March 25 at 6:30pm in Toronto – You’ve got the ideas. You’ve got the passion. You’ve got the drive. What you’re missing is the almighty dollar.  Grant writing and fundraising events are no longer your only options when it comes to finding money to get your project off the ground. Nancy Kenny introduces you to the wonderful world of crowdfunding.
  • Canada's Anti-Spam Law: What Theatre Practitioners Need To Know on March 26 at 2:00pm in Toronto – Electronic marketing is one of the least expensive and most prolific ways for theatre practitioners to reach their audiences - to promote upcoming shows, provide ticket offers and solicit for volunteer and financial support.  Canada's new anti-spam law ("CASL"), which is expected to come into force this year, places considerable restrictions on the sending of commercial electronic messages.  This seminar will provide an overview of the requirements and penalties under CASL, and discuss examples of practical compliance methods.
