Non-profit live music producers and presenters, take note: applications are now being accepted until March 23, 2022 for the City of Vancouver’s Theatre Rental Grant (TRG) program. The program provides successful applicants with in-kind financial assistance to rent the Vancouver Civic Theatres. The ANNEX, the Orpheum, the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and the Vancouver Playhouse are each eligible for applications via this program.
This program is for Vancouver-based, professional non-profit arts and cultural organizations with missions to develop, create, produce, present, and disseminate artistic work for the benefit of the arts sector, in any artistic discipline (i.e. Indigenous arts, community arts, dance, interdisciplinary, literary, media, multidisciplinary, music, theatre, and visual arts).
Grants support performing arts groups by providing access to well-equipped professional venues that facilitate broad public access, and showcase an array of artistic traditions. Examples of eligible expenses include City Council-approved daily rental rates, in-house technical support and equipment, and front-of-house staff support for your event or activity.
The deadline for applications is March 23, 2022. Read the guidelines, and learn more about eligibility, approved activities, and the application process online here.
