Theatre Multi-Year Operating - Mid-Cycle Report

Mid-Cycle Report deadline: April 3, 2023.

For questions about this program, contact Elahe Marjovi, Theatre Program Manager

What does this program support?

The Theatre Multi-year Operating program supports professional1 non-profit theatre organizations and collectives (both incorporated and unincorporated) engaged in the creation, production and presentation of theatre, and other activities that contribute to the development of theatre, theatre artists, and theatre audiences in Toronto. Funding through this program supports both operations and programming. The City of Toronto supports this program through a funding allocation approved annually by Toronto City Council.

Grants awarded may be less than the full amount requested. These grants contribute to the artistic and administrative costs associated with an organization’s ongoing theatre activities. TAC does not provide funding for capital projects (e.g. equipment, renovations, purchase of buildings), fundraising events/projects or deficit reduction.

Who can apply?

  • ONLY organizations/collectives that have been already receiving a Multi-Year operating grant and are in the second or third year of their multi-year cycle may apply to this program.
  • The first year of the multi-year cycle for Theatre Operating program is as below:
    • Service organizations 2024
    • Theatre companies 2025
  • First time applicants may only apply to the Annual Operating program in the first year of a multi-year cycle.

[1] TAC recognizes that due to systemic barriers within the broader arts community (e.g. limited mainstream presentation opportunities for artists from equity-seeking communities) that some flexibility may be required in interpreting eligibility criteria to take into account equivalent professional experience and contexts. Potential applicants from equity-seeking communities are encouraged to discuss their eligibility with the program manager in advance of submitting an application.
