Award amount: $2,000
The Jon Kaplan Fund Awards will offer support and encouragement to theatre artists of merit and need. There is no “best” associated with these Awards, and the adjudicating committees will be focussed on selecting the most appropriate recipients based on these criteria.
Who are you?
- You are a Canadian theatre maker who has been engaged in the work for at least five years post training, if any.
- You know or are aware of a Canadian stage performer whose work you feel has merit, who has demonstrated a strong commitment to the art, and who could really use a boost in terms of acknowledgement and in terms of a bit of financial support.
For the inaugural awards, Guidelines will be published early November of 2018, and the Jon Kaplan Legacy Fund Awards will be open to receive submissions and nominations December 1, 2018. The Fund will accept submissions and nominations until April 1, 2019 in order to give us adequate time to process what we’ve received.
The inaugural Jon Kaplan Legacy Fund Awards will be presented at a reception on Monday, May 13, 2019.
