Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations, government agencies, educational institutions, and Aboriginal institutions and organizations for the presentation of performing arts series and arts festivals. Funding is intended to support programming that gives Canadians opportunities to value and engage with professional artistic experiences.
The Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters sub-component supports existing professional arts festivals and performing arts series presenters to offer activities that connect artists with Canadians in their communities. This is primarily achieved through performances, as well as through audience development and outreach initiatives such as pre- or post-show panel discussions, public lectures and workshops, residencies, demonstrations, public rehearsals, and other forms of community engagement activities.
The expected results of the Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters sub-component include the following:
- Arts presenter organizations offer a variety of professional artistic experiences to Canadians; and
- Canadians in all regions of the country engage and participate in a variety of professional artistic experiences offered by arts presenters.
-Presentation of a minimum of three distinct professional shows, as part of a performing arts series, in one or several artistic disciplines and from more than one province or territory;
-Presentation within a festival format of at least three distinct professional performances or events from one or several artistic disciplines and from more than one province or territory;
-Community engagement activities, including audience development/outreach activities (see Glossary for more details);
-Professional development/networking activities for arts presenters such as attending workshops and conferences;
-Partnerships and collaborations including other arts presenters, not-for-profit arts community organizations and/or educational institutions; and
