Canadian Stage Scholarship Fund for Designers, Technicians, and Stage Managers

As part of our efforts to invest resources in the live performance community, Canadian Stage, in partnership with Theatre Gargantua and Native Earth Performing Arts, will be offering scholarship funding of up to $2,000 for designers, technicians, and stage managers to train in new skills or skills upgrading. This grant is designed to support professional live performance technicians and designers in skills development, adapting and expanding their creative practice to meet new opportunities in live performance practices. The goal of this program is to support the artists in enriching the skill sets within our community in order to face the new challenges of live performance in a socially distant context.

Applicants may select any course of study, including workshops, classes, online tutorials, university courses, or any other program where there is a cost attached that the Fund can cover or supplement. It is the applicant’s responsibility to locate the courses or opportunities.

These opportunities could be but are not limited to: virtual reality, augmented reality, anti-racist/anti-oppressive training, streaming platforms, new media, and more.
