Theatre Engaging Communities (TEC)

Through the Theatre Engaging Communities (TEC) program, NTS supports its students and recent graduates by financing some of their artistic projects produced outside of the School (up to $5,000). This program combines the pursuit of artistic excellence with the determination to strengthen theatre’s social impact.

Only students and recent NTS graduates (up to 5 years after graduation) may apply for for a grant to produce or perform art projects outside of the School if these projects demonstrate social or community involvement.

Two types of grants are available

Type 1

Project with moderate community involvement:
$1,000 to $2,500

Here, the intended community is invited to participate in part of the process
or the presentation without being at the centre of it.

Type 2

Project focusing on community involvement:
$3,000 to $5,000

Here community participation is central to all stages of the project.
The community is not only invited but benefits from the process and presentation, if applicable.

Call for projects

We accept project submissions from April 4 to May 4, 2022.
The announcement of the awardees will be made in June 2022.
