The Theatre Creators’ Reserve Program (through the Ontario Arts Council) assists Ontario-based professional theatre creators, individuals and collectives, by funding them to develop new work. Native Earth accepts submissions from emerging and established multidisciplinary theatre creators. Please note that these funds are not to be used for workshops or productions, but are intended to provide funding for artists to have the time to create new work.

Native Earth particularly encourages submissions by Indigenous artists, artists-of-colour and women; emerging and established multidisciplinary artists.

Applicants may request between $1000 and $5000.
Note: On average Native Earth’s recommendations
range between $1000 – $2000. 

Only one submission per individual/collective will be accepted.

As always, we ask those involved with the company to work from the seven values that govern Native Earth: Courage, Generosity, Tolerance, Strength of Character, Patience, Humility and Wisdom.
